Aiding displaced families in remote areas outside Marawi

27 июнь 2017

Thousands of people who were not able to flee the fighting in Marawi City by going north toward Iligan City, moved toward municipalities on the east of Lake Lanao. Ditsaan-Ramain is one such hard-to-reach municipality where displaced families do not receive as much relief supplies due to access and security issues, and have to cope with the higher prices of food and other basic commodities.

To support them, we distributed on June 23-24 household items to nearly 13,000 displaced people staying in evacuation centers and with their relatives in Ditsaan-Ramain, together with volunteers from the Philippine Red Cross. Around 650 people in evacuation centers received hygiene items as part of the assistance.
