The Philippine Red Cross on Monday said orthopedic doctors are urgently needed in Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental as many typhoon survivors suffered broken bones.

PRC Chairman Richard Gordon said the organization will be able to bring two weeks' worth of food and basic supplies to the disaster areas beginning tomorrow.

However, he stressed that the government must speed up the repairs of damaged roads and bridges so that aid will quickly reach the survivors.
