One year after a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake took nearly 9,000 lives and damaged or destroyed more than 800,000 homes, the American Red Cross continues to help the people of Nepal rebuild their lives. And while the road to recovery is still a long one, as evident in these photos, the earthquake ravaged villages of Nepal aren’t defined by destruction, but by hope.
