The world came to Nepal’s aid after a series of earthquakes in 2015 killed nearly 9,000 people and flattened or damaged as many as 800,000 homes. But two and a half years later, not even 1 percent of the people who need help have received everything the Nepalese government has promised, despite more than $4 billion in pledged aid. While politicians bicker over who’s in charge and how to use the money, penniless people across much of the country are still living in tents.
