Image © 2015 Jack Kurtz || 05 AUGUST 2015 - KATHMANDU, NEPAL: People get water from a communal spigot in a large Internal Displaced Person (IDP) Camp in the center of Kathmandu. The camp is next to one the most expensive international hotels in Kathmandu. More than 7,100 people displaced by the Nepal earthquake in April live in 1,800 tents spread across the space of three football fields. There is no electricity in the camp. International NGOs provide water and dug latrines on the edge of the camp but the domestic waste water, from people doing laundry or dishes, runs between the tents. Most of the ground in the camp is muddy from the running water and frequent rain. Most of the camp's residents come from the mountains in northern Nepal, 8 - 12 hours from Kathmandu. The residents don't get rations or food assistance so every day many of them walk the streets of Kathmandu looking for day work. PHOTO BY JACK KURTZ

Jack Kurtz's Message: I made these photos in a large IDP camp in Kathmandu. Most of the people in the camp came to Kathmandu after a devastating earthquake rocked the country. They hope to go back to their homes in the mountains but for now are stranded in the Nepalese capital.

I've relocated to Bangkok, Thailand. I'm working on stories and freelancing. If you need a photographer in Thailand, give me a shout.

Thanks for looking,

Jack
