When the first of the Nepal earthquakes hit in April last year, Sarmil and her family were working outside while her two year-old daughter, Sarjala was alone in their home.
In January, Global Village coordinator Sarah Garden led a team of 35 volunteers to work alongside a community in Kavre, where Habitat for Humanity is undertaking an earthquake recovery project. With the end of last month marking the one year anniversary of the first earthquake, Sarah reflects on her time in Nepal.

Almost ten months ago on April 25 2015, Nepal was rocked by a 7.9-magnitude earthquake.
During Nepal’s winter, the temperature averages an icy 9 degrees, and in the night it can drop below zero. This is the first winter Nepal has experienced since the earthquakes in April and May last year, and with so many families still without homes or in temporary shelter, this winter will feel even colder.
Six months have passed since a 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April 2015, with the epicentre about 80 kilometres north west of the capital, Kathmandu. This was followed by another magnitude-7.4 earthquake to the north east near Mount Everest on 12 May.
