Pray for Peace in Marawi: Displaced Marawi residents find ways to earn for their daily needs... "We have no source of income. That’s why we think of something to help us survive..."

 "Some evacuees are selling junk foods and other basic needs at evacuation centers to earn money.

Another evacuee, Mercy Dibay,  said she’s doing it so that her family won’t always have to depend on the aid the government gives.

“If we will not do this, we will have no money.  We have children who go to school. . We have no source of income. That’s why we think of something to help us survive,” said Dibay Other evacuees are now asking for additional capital from donors.

“We are calling on those who want to help us improve our mini store,” said evacuee Zenaida Mesama.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is glad with the initiative and positive outlook of the “bakwits”.

DSWD noted this is an indication that they are rising up from the tragedy they have experienced.

“I am happy that the displaced people have creativity and resourcefulness. We really need to act. What the IDPs (internally displaced persons) are doing is a positive step. I believe and I trust that the people of Maranao, that they can stand and build back their lives better,” DSWD Undersecretary Hope Hervilla said.

DSWD assured the Maranaos that the government will do all it can to bring back their lives to normal. – Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue
