Philippines: Forgotten typhoon refugees

Philippines: Forgotten typhoon refugees

A woman asks for food and other relief supplies from motorists along a road in Osmena town, Compostela Valley in southern Philippines.

A much-weakened storm was set to make landfall in the Philippines’ northwest, five days after the year’s strongest typhoon, Typhoon Bopha, killed 540 people and caused crop damage worth about eight billion pesos in the south. Residents in typhoon-hit areas on southern Mindanao island have been appealing for urgent aid.
