Tens of thousands are still living in schools, churches and other public buildings since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines a little over a month ago.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was recently in the country on a 3-day visit to increase support for a massive recovery plan in the works.

The UN estimates that over 15 million people have been affected by the disaster. Tacloban City in central Philippines is one of the worst-hit areas.
