The tragedy of Nepal

The two earthquakes that shook Nepal (April 25th and May 12th), with 7.8 and 7.3 degrees on the Richter scale respectively, left nearly 10,000 dead and about 20,000 wounded, and 1 million people have been affected. The UN has estimated losses at approximately 5,200 million dollars and, until now, international solidarity has been able to raise about 18 million euros, which means that there’s still a long way for Nepal to recovered its normalcy.
