June 16, 2017

Since May 23, 2017 the Philippines army has been fighting Islamist militants in the southern city of Marawi on the island of Mindanao. As of June 4, the conflict has resulted in the death of 218 people, including 20 civilians, and more than 290,000 people (more than 58,000 families) have been displaced.

LWR is providing cash transfers to 1,100 displaced families who have taken refuge either with host families or in evacuation centers in Iligan City. We will also provide water filtration units so displaced families have access to clean drinking water at evacuation centers.
