A week the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal, the full extent the disaster is still coming light. The United Nations has called further support to aid the rescue attempts. Only $53 million the $415 million promised countries has been given. The capital Kathmandu is struggling to deal the sheer enormity the destruction, while whole towns along the length the Kathmandu Valley have been flattened. Hundreds thousands homes the impoverished Himalayan nation have been damaged or destroyed, leaving more than three million people sheltering under blue tarpaulins and need of food and medicine.

Nepal’s Prime Minister, Sushil Koirala, has admitted that his government is overwhelmed the scale the disaster and is ill-equipped to cope. He requested helicopters to help the distribution of aid. However, the logistics this are being hampered the country's rugged terrain, which often makes it difficult anything to be delivered air. Many of the roads have been swept away avalanches and landslides. Further exacerbating the problem is the fact that Kathmandu's international airport has only one runway, which has hindered the delivery much-needed supplies. The U.N. World Food Program warned that it would take time aid to reach more remote communities.
