Following the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015, the death toll, now over 5,800 continues to rise, along with widespread devastation and destruction caused throughout hundreds of cities and villages across Nepal. Continued aftershocks occurred throughout Nepal, with one shock reaching a magnitude of 6.7 on 26 April 2015. The country is at continued risk of landslides as well. Nepal's Prime Minister, Sushil Koirala, has said that the death toll could reach 10,000.
In 2011, Nepal was ranked 54th worst of 81 ranked countries on the Global Hunger Index, between Cambodia and Togo. In 2014, Nepal was ranked 145th of 187 countries on the Human Development Index. Nepal continues to struggle with high levels of hunger and poverty.
Over 100,000 victims of this devastating earthquake, have been left homeless, famished and without hope.
