From the start of the armed clashes in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur, on 23 May 2017, the ICRC teams have been on the ground to engage with relevant stakeholders, and to protect and assist civilians affected by the fighting.

By the end of September, the ICRC has assisted more than 100,000 displaced people, working alone or with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). The multidisciplinary response continues to meet evolving humanitarian needs, focusing on the hard-to-reach areas to the east and west of Lake Lanao.
