Philippine children still battered by Bopha

Experts say young victims in country's south need support to overcome emotional trauma of deadly storm.

    Thousands of children were left homeless and many orphaned after Typhoon Bopha ripped through the southern Philippines last month.

    While the focus has been on rebuilding infrastructure, aid groups say more needs to be done to help young people come to terms with their emotional trauma.

    Al Jazeera’s Marga Ortigas reports from Compostela Valley, one of the worst-hit areas.
