Description : ICRC website, photo gallery "Growing needs for displaced people in Marawi", 2 juin 2017

"Around 200,000 people have fled the hostilities in Marawi City, seeking safety in evacuation centers or with relatives. The need for food, clean water, health care and sanitation is growing as authorities try to cope with the sudden influx of evacuees.

The ICRC, with the Philippine Red Cross, has been on the ground since the onset of the fighting. Together they have been providing relief items to thousands of displaced families, and enhanced their access to clean water and health care."
