On April 25, a devastating earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck Nepal. The death toll from the ‪#‎NepalEarthquake‬ has passed 8,000. More than 600,000 houses are completely destroyed or partially damaged. Eight million people have been affected.

The earthquake was followed by a large number of aftershocks, including one that measured 7.3 on 12 May.

We strongly believe that Nepal’s recovery should be guided by data than any other criteria. Read more about this in our oped on TIME.
