The international aid effort in parts of the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan is starting to have a major impact, with tens of thousands of victims of receiving supplies.

 

Medical teams are operating in the worst-affected areas and US helicopters flying aid to isolated settlements.

 

The UN says it and its partners hope to provide enough aid for six months.

 

Haiyan, which hit eight days ago, has killed more than 3,600 people and left about half a million homeless.
