One month after a massive earthquake devastated Nepal, the international community is "running against the clock" to deliver aid to remote communities, the UN has said.

More than 8000 people were killed in the tremor on April 25.

There was also widespread damage to the country's infrastructure.

Monsoon rains which are due to arrive in the coming weeks will complicate the delivery of relief supplies.

Ana Carmo has been speaking to Jamie McGoldrick, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal.
