Global Impact has extended relief and psychosocial assistance to more than 1,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) from Marawi City, Philippines due to the intense siege between terrorist groups and the Philippine Government that commenced last May 2017.

To date, there have been 260,000 IDPs in government-established evacuation sites and homebased evacuation sites. The Global Impact team provided assistance to these evacuees during two outreach trips to Iligan City and Davao City in July and August.
