On April 26, 2015, one day after the most devastating Earthquake to hit Nepal in 80 years, the Nepal Photo Project began.
Approximately 7,000 people were killed in the 7.8 quake. If you are in the area, you can contribute to the project by tagging your images with #nepalphotoproject.

Inside an India Air Force rescue helicopter, on our way back from Sindhupalchowk, 9-year-old Suresh Tamang looks on while his father Mirghe stares outside the window. Suresh’s left leg is bent like a bow and his forehead and left eye is swollen after a portion of his home fell on him. A technician in the helicopter asked them if they have eaten anything. Too dazed to respond, the young man didn’t wait long enough for them to answer and offered Suresh a Dairy Milk bar. The boy from Singerchya wanted a sip of water first and offered him a bottle lying under the seat. Unable to open the packet, he insisted I feed him the chocolate bar. Photo by @riteshuttamchandani.
