On 25 April 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, levelling parts of the country. For many people in this mountainous country, it’s a day they’ll never forget

Baburam Sarki was at home with his family in Depche Danda, Tanahun when the earthquake started.

"Initially, I thought that a bomb exploded somewhere because of the sound," said 66-year-old Baburam.

"We ran out of the house as quickly as we could. Right after, our house fell down – we saw everything destroyed in front of our eyes."
