Philippines: Fulfilling our humanitarian mission in 2022
Long-running armed conflicts in the Philippines leave a heavy toll on communities that are already facing high levels of poverty. While clashes are sporadic, they nevertheless burden families whose livelihoods are disrupted. Humanitarian concerns around the protection of civilians and respect for international humanitarian law (IHL) by parties to the armed conflict also remain.
