Monika (right) and her sister Aastha pose for a portrait in their temporary home in Chautara, Sindhupalchowk, Nepal on 29 June 2015. Monika (7), Aastha (6) and Sapana Baniya (2 months) lost their mother during the April 25th earthquake that completely levelled their house. Aastha was buried under the rubble together with her mother but Aastha survived. As their father Ratna Baniya (28) cannot care for the children on his own, SOS Childrens Villages has since been supporting their grandmother Bhagawati Baniya (56) with financial and social support so that she can manage to raise the children comfortably and ensure that they will all be schooled.
