Almost a month after the ferocious Typhoon Bopha tore through the southern Philippines, the United Nations says more than 40,000 families are still without emergency shelter kits.

It says food, water and other aid is starting to reach the survivors but hundreds are still missing.

More than 1,000 people were killed by the category five storm, which wiped out entire towns with flash flooding.
