More than half a million people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines have received aid thanks to the "overwhelming" support of the British public.
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) said its aid agencies had reached some 590,000 survivors across the country as they provide much-needed clean water, food, medical care and materials for temporary shelter.
The Philippines Typhoon Appeal has raised a "staggering" £44 million in donations in little more than a week, the DEC said, which is helping to fund crucial aid in some of the worst hit parts of the islands.
"The generosity of the UK public has been overwhelming and will make a huge difference to people's lives," it added.
