On 23 May 2017, a group of rebel fighters called the “Maute Group” attacked the city of Marawi in Lanao del Sur, population: 211,000+. The assault has displaced hundreds of people. Evacuation centers are taking in an increasing number of IDPs, as home-based sites are reached by basic and primary aid especially food and health. With the declaration from the government of Marawi’s liberation from the terror group, IDPs are preparing for return. While return programs are in the pipeline, many issues still need to be looked into, especially the most urgent of all: food.
