The death toll from Nepal's massive earthquake is now more than 6,200, with officials saying that it may rise to 10,000 or more.

Entire villages in the country's rural regions have been destroyed and survivors are still without aid, despite a constant flow into Kathmandu airport.

Journalist Donatella Lorch has been living outside Kathmandu for years. She has spent the last week traveling the countryside with her 10-year-old son.

Lynch has been documenting the struggle for survival and small acts of kindness they have seen, bringing the Nepalese people together. She speaks with Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd about her local view of the Nepal earthquake disaster.
