Since the first quake they’ve been living in a temporary shelter that includes space for cooking, living and sleeping. Sometimes they will go into their house for particular needs only.
The whole family was quite terrified by the quakes and Tendi says if another one comes and it comes at night there would be a greater chance of harm and there would be greater danger.
“I was very terrified after the quakes. I lost my appetite and did not eat for several days follow one of the quakes, but I’ve been eating since then,” Yandi said. “My boys were very scared after the quakes. I’m concerned for them when they go to school. Sonam is afraid to use the toilet, believing he will be caught in there when another quake comes.”
