Children who live at Our Children’s Home in Pokhara are joining others in sleeping outside rather than risk injury from buildings that could collapse in an aftershock of the earthquake. From left is Arjun Paudel, and next to him in the front row are Samikshya Mahora, Laxman Shai and Amrit Dhungana. In the back row center are brothers Sanjay and Ajay Lamichhina, flanked by brothers Pascal and Aidan Dahal, who live nearby. (Amrita Dhungana/YJI)
