Binita Tamang (10, left) plays with her school friend as Binita's partially-collapsed house is seen in the background in Kavre, Bagmati, Nepal on 30 June 2015.  Binita was nearly trapped on the 2nd floor of the building when the earthquake struck, only managing to get outside after the shaking stopped. Her mother, Kalpana, a widow with 3 children, has been supported by SOS Children's Villages for many years now and had receive the Home-in-a-Box after the earthquake destroyed her house, almost killing her two daughters. She now lives in a temporary shelter, sharing her dwelling with farm animals, and is trying to make ends meet by weaving bamboo baskets to supplement the financial assistance provided by SOS Childrens Villages. The NGO mostly supports her children's welfare and schooling as well as provides her with essential household and schooling items like kitchen utensils and school books and uniforms.
