Australia is providing a further $AUD30 million in aid to areas devastated by super typhoon Haiyan in the central Philippines.
The Australian Embassy in Manila says $10 million will be used to fund livelihood programs for typhoon survivors, re-stock supplies and establish disaster preparedness among communities, while $20 million will be allotted to building 500 classrooms in typhoon-hit areas.
The embassy says Australian technical experts will also be provided to help the central Philippines' recovery programs.
The new funding follows $40 million in emergency relief Australia provided immediately after the onslaught of Typhoon Haiyan in November.
Logistics support and classroom rehabilitation were also provided by the Australian military.
