UK aid shelter kits are being distributed to thousands of people who have lost their homes in remote parts of Nepal. Working with NGOs including MedAir, ACTED and Shelterbox, the kits are being distributed by helicopter, road and ultimately, heads, as they are carried up steep mountain trails to where they are needed.

But help is now at hand, as a team of UK doctors and firefighters are working to the get the hospital back on its feet, and its 800 beds operational once more.

Read Captain Bhandari’s story of how he survived when the earthquake shook Everest and why he’s helping the UK aid effort.
