Bopha survivors protest Philippines aid programShirley Escalante, Manila, Thursday February 14, 2013 - 16:59 EDT
Survivors of Typhoon Bopha in the Philippines have protested against what they claim is the government's corrupt handling of the relief and rehabilitation program following the disaster in December.
Protesters have staged a demonstration in front of the regional social welfare office.
They are accusing the government of mismanaging $US450 million of calamity funds and international aid.
The survivors have reportedly only received relief supplies twice in the past two months.
Meanwhile, bunkhouses built for those who lost their homes have been overpriced.
The Social Welfare Secretary has promised to look into the complaints.
Last month, thousands of villagers blocked a road for ten hours to protest the government's aid program.
Typhoon Bopha slammed into the southern Philippines in December, killing more than 1,000 people dead and leaving hundreds of thousands others displaced.
