    Five months after Typhoon Ketsana hit the Philippines, some evacuation centres are starting to close but thousands of people are still without homes.

    Aid workers say part of the problem has been a poor response to the UN's appeal for emergency funds to help the victims of the storm.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas spoke to one of the survivors in the outskirts of Manila.
