In this shared experience, the Philippine Red Cross recounts the challenges it encountered and how it overcame them when fighting broke out between Philippine government forces and a faction of the Moro National Liberation Front in September 2013. During the violence, the National Society suffered a security incident. By describing the actions it took in response and the lessons it learnt, the Philippine Red Cross hopes to help other National Societies facing similar challenges to their acceptance, security and access.
