Challenge

The island of Mindanao is teeming with internally displaced peoples or refugees in their own country. They left their homes and farms due to a host of factors foremost of which is the long running communist insurgency, violence by Muslim extremists and natural disasters such as typhoons. They are not protected by international law and lack humanitarian support.

Solution

This project will seek-out internally displaced refugees living in the town centers or urban areas or their relatives far away from their homes and farms with the assistance focusing on food, medicine, shelter, education for their children and livelihood assistance.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the lives of internally displaced peoples will mean improved communities.
