LESS THAN A month ago, the world fell down on Nepal. Soon after, thousands of aid workers descended to help pick up the pieces. And then, a week ago, the world fell down again. “When the second earthquake happened, people everywhere were saying the death prayer. There was a lot of screaming,” says Cindy Stein, who was working at a hospital in Kathmandu.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Nepal with devastating force Saturday, killing thousands. Many more are unaccounted for as the search for survivors continues.
