    Thousands of survivors of a massive earthquake in Nepal three years ago are still in makeshift shelters.

    Almost 800,000 homes were damaged by the quake.

    Each family qualifies to receive $3000 for rebuilding, but so far only 119,000 families have a permanent home - the rest remain in temporary shelters.

    They say the government has not lived up to its promise of providing them with permanent homes.
