Agencies seek help for 40,000 displaced in S Philippines, monsoon rains threaten shelters

Report
AlertNet

BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – At least 40,000 people remain displaced in the southern Philippines, 10 months after fighting between the army and Muslim guerrillas caused 100,000 to flee and destroyed more than 10,000 homes, aid agencies said on Thursday.

Super typhoon Haiyan, which hit the central Philippines in November, overshadowed the plight of Zamboanga’s displaced people, and aid agencies are now urging donors to help the tens of thousands still stuck in crowded evacuation centres, in temporary shelters remote from their jobs or staying with friends and relatives.
