    OVP Partners with ARMM for Marawi Rehab

    Office of the Vice President 14 June 2017

    The ARMM government and various Angat Buhay partners convened at the Quezon City Reception House and discussed rehabilitation efforts for Marawi Friday (June 9).

    Through the Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation program of Angat Buhay, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) has already distributed a total of 7,867 relief packs, reaching out to affected families in the province. While the fight to regain Marawi is still ongoing, OVP has already initiated to collaborate with the ARMM government in its rehabilitation initiatives.

    During the discussion, the ARMM government has set three phases to help Marawi recover. Early recovery and reconstruction, medium term-reconstruction, and long-term rehabilitation and development, as Phases I-III, respectively, have been laid out, with Angat Buhay and its partners teaming up for augmentation efforts.

    Currently, efforts are focused on Phase I: Early recovery and reconstruction. Rehabilitation in this stage is centered on responding to humanitarian needs such as protection, health and nutrition, and education; and food security and livelihood, shelter, and infrastructure rehabilitation.

    With the ongoing rehabilitation program, Marawi continues to call for food packs that are halal-certified, malong, breast milk, water and water filters, as well as psychosocial intervention for the holistic healing of our brothers and sisters affected by the conflict in Mindanao.
