Silver flashes off the new sheets of corrugated iron that roof almost every building around Lachyang village, in a mountainous part of Nuwakot district, five hours’ drive from Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu.

One of these houses belongs to Januka Tamang. After losing everything in the earthquake earlier in the year, she now shares an iron shed with her daughter, 6, and son, 12.
