The country of Nepal has been rocked yet again by another earthquake. The 7.3 magnitude earthquake left dozens dead and more than a thousand people are injured. This earthquake comes only weeks after the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu — the worst earthquake in Nepal in the last 81 years. More than 4,000 people died, thousands were injured and homes were destroyed. UNICEF estimates that nearly 1 million children are in need of humanitarian assistance — from medical supplies, to food, water and shelter.
