ITV News' International Correspondent John Irvine has travelled to the remote island of Bantayan in the Philippines where help is yet to arrive.
The islanders have written a desperate call for aid but are still waiting five days on.
When ITV News visited the island today people told us that many residents had been left with nothing after the typhoon.
The Philippine president said the death toll from Typhoon Haiyan could be lower than initially thought, but that many areas remain cut off.
Satellite images of the Philippines before and after Typhoon Haiyan struck show how the storm flattened whole communities.
