In 2015 two violent earthquakes brought destruction to Nepal, killing 9,000 people. In earthquake affected areas, nearly half of all water supplies were destroyed and thousands of toilets damaged.
The film, Aftershock, tells the story of plumber Krishna Sunuwar, 58, as he works with his neighbours in Kharelthok, Kavre district, to repair a water system which was damaged in the earthquakes.
The film centres around the recovery of a community after the 2015 earthquakes. After the earthquake the people of Kharelthok, Nepal, faced what seemed like an impossible situation. Homes and household toilets lay in ruins and the village’s water supply dried up, forcing residents to search for new sources and putting everyone at risk of diseases caused by drinking dirty water. But with WaterAid's support, the community have been battling against the odds to achieve something remarkable. The film is their story.
