Typhoon Bopha Situation Report No. 12 (as of 31 December 2012)
Significant humanitarian response gaps exist in adequately addressing the needs of the affected communities nearly three week on.
Though figures are unavailable, initial reports indicate there are increasing numbers of diarrhea cases especially among women and children due to unhygienic conditions.
The opening of the new school term is postponed by a week for better preparations.
On 28 December, the government and its humanitarian partners started revising the Bopha Action Plan (BAP) for response and recovery. The original BAP launched on 10 December requested for US$65 million which is 20 per cent funded with US$13 million committed and 7 million in pledges.
