"I'm living in a tent. My house was destroyed in the earthquake. The ground was shaking and everything was moving. I was scared, but my family is ok."

12 year old Andrew is from the earthquake-hit village Chautara, Nepal, which was reached by the UK's International Search and Rescue team yesterday. The UK is responding to Nepal's request for international help, sending search and rescue teams, emergency medics and logistical support.

These girls have been living in a makeshift camp since the earthquake struck Nepal – but they're still smiling. The quake took everything they had, but now at least they have clean water – after a team of British Gurkha engineers built a purification system: http://ow.ly/MqE0G
