It is one month since Typhoon Haiyan hit The Philippines and Oxfam says the aid effort has helped millions.
The charity organisation says despite widespread destruction international support and the solidarity of people has helped millions of people.
However, the group warns that major gaps remain, with millions of people in rural and hard to reach areas, having received little official aid.
The Daily Mirror's Cathal McMahon is in the Philippines and says the communities are staying strong:
The OXFAM helpline is 1850 304050 - or you can contact Oxfam.org -
Aid agencies as well as military help from the USA and Great Britain are bringing supplies of shelter, food and medicine to the most needy.
An Irish charity, Disaster Tech Lab, have flown to the disaster zone to provide phone and internet access so people affected by Haiyan can get back in contact with their families.
While World Vision Ireland are setting up "safe spaces" for children affected by the November storm to help them come to terms with the disaster.
98FM's compiling an 'at a glance' briefing for how to make your donation to the relief effort:

The Filipino Community in Ireland have already raised thousands of Euro for the victims of Haiyan. They've been posted on the Facebook page of the Philippine Consulate here in Ireland.
