Short Documentary: Survivors’ Stories Amid Unimaginable Loss

Not that long ago on 25th April 2015, a massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal that claimed nearly 8000 lives and displaced estimated 200,000 people. After experiencing more than 150 aftershocks and several 5+ Richter scales tremors, people thought that dust had settled and started going back to their houses that were livable. People were trying to recover and come to the terms of unimaginable suffering and loss. However, the quake is just not done yet with the people of Nepal. Today, another massive 7.4-magnitude quake wrecked the country and knocked down several houses that resisted it for a time being.

Samaritan’s Purse volunteers on the ground filmed this short documentary to tell the survivors’ stories and shows the ways how we can extend our help.

Watching the destruction of the city of Kathmandu is even more so heartbreaking and gut-wrenching experience for us who grew up visiting these places that are shown in the documentary.
