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.
Stein’s organization, Real Medicine Foundation, came in to offer traditional relief—food, water, shelter, medicine. But it also delivered an often-overlooked component of disaster recovery: care for psychological trauma, in addition...
