Thanks for answering!

I wouldn't have guessed that those would be the most common medical complications that we'd be dealing with.

This disaster has hit close to home because my parents, aunt and uncle were right in the middle of things when this happened. Thankfully after a 2-3-day ordeal, they managed to return home safe. (All the places they visited last week have now collapsed.)

So, thank you to all of you who are doing this. And my feelings go out to those people who've suffered as a result of this earthquake (especially knowing that Nepal is such a small country that depends on tourism as its mainstay).

My wife and I donated via Facebook, but now that we know of the links in this thread, we will do more.

My questions:
What are the most common medical issues that arise from such events?
What have you seen there that has broken your heart more than anything?
