Typhoon Haiyan: fears not all survivors have been reached
"There's an urgent call now for us to monitor the movement of foreign aid funds for [the typhoon] so they will go exactly where they're supposed to: to the survivors," Richard Moya, the budget undersecretary and chief information officer, said in a statement, announcing the creation of a website to facilitate such scrutiny.
The Philippines government said more than $270m in foreign aid has been pledged –although Action Against Hunger warned this weekend that promised donations often fail to materialise after natural disasters.
