Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. A powerful quake of 7.8 magnitude struck parts of the country April 25, killing more than 7,000 people and causing extreme devastation. It was the strongest earthquake to hit the Himalaya region in more than 80 years. Earlier this week, Nepal was hit again by a series of earthquakes.
