Eight million people – more than a quarter of the country’s population – have been affected by the earthquake in Nepal.

International aid from all over the globe has started arriving but 1.4 million people still need food.

The7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday has left a mass of destruction in its wake, severely affecting rural areas.

8000 people have been left injured by the quake with the death toll rising to 4,310.

Water, food and electricity are scarce and there are fears that the poor living conditions could lead to an outbreak in disease.

The Nepalese government says the country desperately requires doctors and medical staff, tents, food, blankets, mattresses and medicine.

The video below shows a drone flying over Kathmandu which revealed the huge amounts of damage.
