A UK-based children’s charity said on Friday it will expand an antihuman trafficking project in the Philippines, as fears grow that young survivors of deadly Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name: “Haiyan”) are becoming easy prey.
A British national living in this city “working for a large international company” sent INQUIRER.net US Bureau photos of the Filipino refugee camp that “established itself next to the Philippine Embassy.”

The Australian government on Monday announced that it would offer an additional P126-million aid to the victims of Typhoon Pablo as a response to the latest appeal made by the Philippine government and the United Nations for the on-going humanitarian crisis caused by the typhoon.
UNICEF has appealed for almost $1.4 billion to meet the immediate, life-saving needs of children in 45 countries and regions globally gripped by conflict, natural disasters and other complex emergencies this year. Funds raised by the annual appeal will also go towards improving disaster preparedness, and to strengthening the resilience of communities to withstand and minimize the impact of new shocks.
