People in Nepal's remote villages wait in rubble for help

SINDHUPALCHOK, Nepal -- Scientists in Nepal have recorded 116 aftershocks of magnitude four or greater since last Saturday's catastrophic 7.8 earthquake. The death toll is over 6,200, and 14,000 are injured.

It took five days before the body of Ram Krishna Puri's three-year-old was recovered from the rubble by a Turkish crew.

"My daughter died like an ant, like a dog," he said. "The home crashed on her. I had this small daughter and now I have nothing."

Puri saved for six years to build his house. He hadn't even moved in when the earthquake destroyed it. He says he has received no assistance.

"I haven't gotten anything," he said. "Who will give us help?"

Every single home in this village has been reduced to rubble. The Red Cross figures that across this district alone, 40,000 homes have been destroyed.

Kailash Gire and his family are now sleeping in a makeshift shelter.

"We need some food, need some clothes, and need some tents," he said.

When word went out that rice was being delivered for the first time, Indarani Ghiri was already in line.

"Everything came crumbling down, there's nothing to eat," said Ghiri.

The rice came from a private donor overseas. Puri told us relief from Nepal's government has yet to arrive.

"They might be called the government," he said. "But they don't do anything for the people."

In these remote villages, we found people who've lost so much, now also feel forgotten.
