In the wake of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal, the UN estimates that 8 million people - more than a quarter of the population - have been affected by the ongoing crisis. More than 8,700 people were reported to have been killed and around 22,500 people were injured. Over 500,000 houses were destroyed and another 280,000 were partially damaged.
