Typhoon Bopha devastated parts of the southern Philippines last Tuesday, but the number of people killed and missing has been climbing steadily.
President Benigno Aquino has declared a state of national calamity as the search for the missing continues.
Raul Hernandez, spokesman for the Philippines department of Foreign Affairs, told the BBC that survivors needed non-perishable food, shelter and medicine.
Mr Hernandez said the Philippines government would welcome foreign assistance.
