The country of mountains, Nepal, has eight of world's ten tallest mountains, including wold's highest point, Mount Everest. This is due to collision between the Indian subcontinent and the Eurasian continent, which started in Paleogene time and continues today, It's location completely within this collision zone, unfortunately, means that earthquakes shouldn't come as a surprise. 
In April this year a major earthquake hit Nepal, killing more more than 8,800 people and injuring more than 23,000, but also triggering avalanches and landslides.  It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. The recovery will be a long process, but you can always help with your donation, which would be more than welcome,  through various organizations (such as UNICEF that is trying to help the children of Nepal). 

I received this amazing mountain view long before the earthquake. Thank you, Ravi!
