Two months after devastating super Typhoon Bopha, over six-thousand people in the southern Philippines are still displaced, unable to return home.

Typhoon Bopha cut a swathe across southern Mindanao on December 4th, affecting at least three million people and claiming over thousand lives.

An estimated 200-thousand homes were either damaged or destroyed.

And according to most reports, thousands of people are still living in tents, under challenging conditions.

The UN Development Programme says it's focussing on risk reduction and community resilience.
