Tales of loss and survival

A shaky arrivalMonica Karki

Monica Karki holds her son, born just a few days before the first quake struck on April 25.

When it hit, they were still in a maternity hospital in Kathmandu known locally as Prasuti Griha.

Now, she and her son are in Tundikhel, a large grassy field in the center of Kathmandu, sharing one tent with three other families.

Her hometown, in the Dolakha district east of the capital, is destroyed.
