Storm-hit Philippines struggles to rebuild

People are rebuilding their homes, days after Typhoon Bopha killed 902 people.

    Barely a week after Typhoon Bopha destroyed their homes, people in Monkayo in the southern Philippines are starting to rebuild their lives.

    The typhoon has left at least 902 people dead mostly on the southern island of Mindanao, where floods and landslides caused major damage in nearly 2,000 villages on December 4, the civil defence office said on Thursday.

    More than 300 fishermen are still believed to be lost at sea.

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