Five-month-old Sonies Awal was among 8 million people who were affected by Nepal’s devastating earthquake in late April. Miraculously, the infant was rescued covered in dust with barely a scratch.

But there haven’t been many survivor stories and happy endings.

The earthquake has become the nation’s worst natural disaster, killing more than 8,000 people, and leaving thousands of others injured. As many work on piecing their lives back together, NGOs have swarmed into the country, bringing aid and supplies, supporting earthquake relief efforts.
