Hundreds of displaced residents of Marawi City were allowed to visit their devastated hometown inside the ground zero on Sunday, following a five- month long military operation to fight militants in the region.
For the first time since the five-month-long military operation in Marawi City finished in October, displaced residents had the chance to catch a glimpse of what was left of their homes... Еще, under the management of the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM).
The house of 55-year-old Samsia Decampong Alamada was burned to ashes. All her belongings were gone. Having six children to feed, Samsia asked for help from Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, sitting next to her husband’s grave.
«He needs to help us return to our homes, this is our territory, we've lost everything,» she said, crying in front of the camera.
TFBM divided the ground zero area into nine sectors and issued a three-day visit for the displaced residents in each sector, before the rehabilitation starts on May.
