Nepal has called off search and rescue efforts after the devastating earthquake that killed at least 157 people on Friday, November 3, 2023.
The focus has now shifted to providing relief to survivors and rebuilding the affected communities.
The earthquake struck the remote northwestern region of Nepal, which is home to some of the country’s poorest and most marginalized people.
Thousands of homes have been destroyed, and many people are now living in makeshift shelters or out in the open.
The government of Nepal has appealed for international assistance, and many countries have already pledged to provide aid.
However, the logistical challenges of delivering aid to the affected region are significant, and it is likely that many people will continue to suffer in the coming days and weeks.
It is important to remember that the people of Nepal are still reeling from the devastating earthquake of 2015, which killed nearly 9,000 people and destroyed more than a million homes.
The government and the international community must work together to ensure that the people of Nepal receive the support they need to recover from this latest disaster.
