Typhoon hit families in the Philippines struggle to recover
More than a thousand people have been killed in the destruction left by Typhoon Bopha in Mindanao, the southern island of the Philippines. Thousands are still living in evacuation centres - their homes totally destroyed. They face an uncertain future since the typhoon wrecked huge plantations of crops and it could take farmers many years to completely recover. Aid agency, Oxfam, is providing clean water, shelter materials, and cash grants for families in some of the worst-affected areas. One area includes these families living in New Bataan, Compostela Valley.
