U.S. Government Programs Provide Relief to Marawi Evacuees
« on: July 21, 2017, 05:24:24 PM »
Manila, July 19, 2017 — The U.S. government is partnering with the Philippine government in delivering critical health and education services to civilians who have been affected by the ongoing conflict in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur.
 
“The United States and the Philippines are longstanding friends, partners and allies,” said U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim. “We will continue to coordinate with the Philippine government on ways to provide relief to families affected by this conflict.”
 
The U.S. government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), provided access to potable water by distributing 12,000 jerry cans (water containers) and 96,000 chlorine tablets to 12,000 families currently staying in evacuation sites in Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, and Iligan City.
 
USAID is also providing support to help stop the spread of infectious diseases, particularly tuberculosis (TB).  With the help of local partners and the Philippine Department of Health, USAID facilitated the delivery of much-needed anti-TB drugs and supplies to evacuation centers, allowing patients to continue their strict medical regimen.  Patients with confirmed cases receive free medical treatment from the Philippine government.
 
USAID is also leveraging one of its ongoing education projects to supply at least 6,000 desks in the temporary learning spaces for displaced children.
 
USAID supports peace and community development in Mindanao through 25 ongoing projects that improve local governance, strengthen the government’s capacity to deliver services, especially in health and education, and promote civic engagement.
 
About USAID:
The U.S. Agency for International Development is the lead U.S. government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.  In the Philippines, USAID partners with the national government to create a more stable, prosperous, and well-governed nation.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
