New York - AFP

The United Nations has received $72 million for its relief fund for the disaster-stricken Philippines with Gulf countries the key contributors, a top U.N. humanitarian official said Friday. Kuwait and United Arab Emirates have each given $10 million to the U.N. appeal for $301 million to help survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, John Ging, the U.N. humanitarian operations director told a news conference. Ging added that more than $80 million has been donated to the Philippines relief effort through other international charities and organizations. "Money is coming very quickly," Ging told reporters, while adding: "We have to keep our foot on the accelerator. Too many people have not received assistance but they should know the assistance is on the way." According to a latest Philippine government toll, 3,620 people have been confirmed as killed by the typhoon. "But we all know that figure is going to rise," Ging said. The United Nations said Thursday, quoting government figures, that about 4,600 people had been killed. The U.N. would stop giving toll estimates because the figures were becoming "confusing," Ging said. The U.N. still says that 13 million people have been affected by the typhoon with 1.9 million people displaced and 287,000 homes serious damaged or destroyed. U.N. officials say the priority in the stricken areas must now be to restore drinking water and health facilities in the worst hit areas, particularly the devastated town of Tacloban.
