Taal volcano alert level remains high as concerns grow about illnesses that may develop due to conditions in temporary shelters.

More than a week after the Taal volcano erupted in the Philippines, about 100,000 people remain in evacuation shelters.

The Philippine government says funds are available for emergency needs. But there is a growing concern for the long-term rehabilitation of those forced to leave their homes.

Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Batangas province.
