• The focus of the humanitarian activities is now shifting from relief to early recovery in the earthquake affected communities.
• Five weeks on, Bohol Earthquake Action Plan has received only 18 per cent of the US$46 million requested. Urgent funding is needed to support the continuing relief operation.
