Nepal: A nation rebuilds

Al Jazeera looks at how Nepalis are rebuilding their country exactly a month after an earthquake killed more than 8,600.

    A month after an earthquake left more than 8,600 people dead in Nepal and neighbouring countries, Nepalis are mourning lost loved ones and looking how to rebuild their devastated country.

    The initial tremor and aftershocks that followed have levelled buildings, overwhelmed hospitals and left ordinary people in desperate need for the essentials.

    The shock of destruction cause by the magnitude 7.8 quake has given way to a sombre realisation of the scale of financial and logistic effort required to rebuild the crippled country.

    Al Jazeera looks at the human cost of the tragedy and what follows for one of the poorest countries in the world.
