The village of Barkobot, in Sindhupalchowk district, is just an hour and a half on good roads from Kathmandu, but it may as well be on the other side of the country, writes Pete Pattisson.

Every single one of the 75 houses in the village has been severely damaged or totally destroyed, and yet no one has received any help from the government.

Where neat stone and mud houses once stood, there are now just piles of rubble. The entire village is living outdoors, under canvas, corrogated metal sheets, or just the shade of a tree. “No one is coming to help us,” said Sangita Giri. “There is a child [buried] over there, but neither the army or police have arrived to help.”
