More funds needed to support Philippines victims

Thousands of Filipinos remain affected by cycles of displacement.

An additional $28.6 million is requested by the UN to support victims of a tropical storm in southern Philippines.

The emergency funds will pay for relief supplies for around 470,000 of the worst-affected people for a period of three months.

The UN Office for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said the appeal was revised to assist the northern Mindanao region and in particular the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
