It’s been eleven days since Typhoon Haiyan ended, but the efforts to repair the shattered country have just begun. 

Aljazeera reports limited markets and gas stations have reopened, although nowhere near full-speed. Temporary shelters are being built for people to live in while homes are beginning to be repaired. Severe food and water shortages still remain. 

Four million citizens have been displaced, as well as 1,600 people are still missing. Overall, the storm has affected 13 million people. 

There are still numerous health concerns as the country's high temperatures and rains are persistent.  

Aid workers and volunteers have been landing in the main airport in Tacloban, as well as helicopters dropping aid over remote areas. 

Over $248 million has been donated so far, as well as a $500 million loan by World Bank.
