The charity, Commonwealth Advocates for Recovery Efforts, which helped in the aftermath of the typhoon, says it needs $US480,000 by the end of January to continue to assist the families with their everyday needs.

The group said if funds weren't forthcoming it would have to stop helping the families.

Last year, the group said it had raised more than $US2.4 million to help Soudelor victims, especially those who lost their homes in the aftermath of the 2015 typhoon.
