Description : On 23 May 2017, armed clashes broke out in Marawi City in Lanao del Sur province, southern Philippines. What many residents thought were brief clashes between government troops and IS Ranao fighters turned out to be a highly destructive urban conflict that lasted five months. More than 300,000 people fled their homes and lived in displacement during this period.
While some families have started rebuilding their lives, an estimated 230,000 people remain displaced to date – including residents of the main affected area. Many were separated from their families and are still looking for their loved ones who went missing.
