KATHMANDU, April 24, 2016 - Earthquake orphan Suraj Tham (2nd L) plays with his friends at Thami village on Mt. Tatopani, Nepal, on April 22, 2016. Suraj Tham lost his mother and younger brother in the devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015. Suraj's father left the home and now Suraj lives with his grandparents. They cannot afford his tuition even though Suraj should go to school at his age. Furthermore, they are worried about the reconstruction for their house because they cannot afford it as well. Suraj is quite silent and shy, always hiding behind his friends. His grandma said that he often looked at his mother's photograph, sometimes for a whole day.
