Nepal EQ_Sankha Maya_KOSHISH: Sankha Maya (38) lives with her husband and two children in a two-storey mud house in a village in Bhaktapur district, about 15 km from capital Kathmandu. Sankha Maya is a client of CBM partner KOSHISH since 2011. She has been living with epilepsy for over 12 years. She was identified through a self-help group in Bhaktapur district.
On 25th April, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake damaged Sankha MayaâÂÂs shelter and caused significant impact on her psychosocial wellbeing. A month after the second major quake on 12th May (of 7.4-magnitude), Sankha Maya still has not been able to return to her daily routine or do the household chores properly.
