2-year-old Ram Krishna’s father was killed in the earthquake-triggered landslide while working as a laborer at a hydropower plant in a neighboring district. He was born after the earthquake. As a young, widowed mother in rural Nepal, Ram’s mother’s future prospects are precarious. He lives with his young mother and older sister, Sadiksha, in a rented room with two other widowed mothers and their children (also supported by HCC). In this way, they can share resources and support each other. The three mothers have been working for a local businessman, stringing wedding bead necklaces to be sold in the city, for which they make about $20 each per month.
