Nepalese villagers collect aid dropped by an Indian helicopter on Wednesday in Hulchuk, Nepal.  A major 7.9 earthquake hit Kathmandu mid-day on Saturday 25th April, and was followed by multiple aftershocks that triggered avalanches on Mt. Everest that buried mountain climbers in their base camps. Many houses, buildings and temples in the capital were destroyed during the earthquake, leaving over 7000 dead and many more trapped under the debris as emergency rescue workers attempt to clear debris and find survivors. Regular aftershocks have hampered recovery missions as locals, officials and aid workers attempt to recover bodies from the rubble
