Clashes between the military and local terrorist groups erupted in Marawi City last May 23. The Maute group torched houses, St. Mary’s Church, the Marawi City Jail, the Ninoy Aquino School, and Dansalan College. Reports said several teachers, a priest and about a dozen parishioners were taken hostage by the terrorist in different areas in Marawi. The military launched surgical air strikes in 3 barangays in Marawi City to flush out some 30 to 40 remaining members of the terrorist Maute group as operations reached the third day (source: abs-cbn news).
There's a total of 40, 624 people affected by this plight and an estimated 2,279 are still stranded in the war zone. We are trying to help reunite separated family members, starving and traumatized survivors by using the money to give food, blankets, psychosocial support, and basic necessities in 24 identified evacuation centers.
Help us raise enough money. Have an impact where it matters the most.
