DSWD now on red alert following Marawi City siege; citizens asked to remain vigilant
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) activated its red alert status earlier today to monitor and prepare for the possible consequences of the ongoing armed operation of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) versus members of the Maute Group and Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) who have pledged their allegiance to the international terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Lanao del Sur.

As of today’s 10AM report from the DSWD-Disaster Response Assistance and Management Bureau (DREAMB), the incident has already affected barangays Sarimanok, Basak, Malutlot, Bangon, Tuca, Caloocan, Marinaut, and Makilala in Marawi City. Residents are not allowed to go out of their respective houses for security reasons and the city is now blocked by government forces and members of the ISIS-backed militants.

Locals from Cotabato City are also advised to take extra-precautionary measures following the declaration of a triple red alert status by their city government due to sightings of alleged terrorists in their area.

Meanwhile, DSWD Secretary Judy M. Taguiwalo has already met with concerned DSWD officials regarding the response operation of the Department on the incident which she will immediately report to President Rodrigo R. Duterte. She also directed nearby regions in the conflict-affected areas to prepare for possible augmentation support since affected residents are expected to seek refuge in nearby regions.

“We are already anticipating evacuees from Marawi so our regional offices are now on call 24/7  to address the needs of affected residents and to monitor the situation on the grounds, as well as, to provide us regular situational reports,” stated Sec. Taguiwalo.

“The DSWD is ready to provide relief assistance to the people of Marawi and to assist the evacuees in coordination with DSWD-ARMM. We will ensure that the people’s well-being, life and rights are upheld and protected,” she added.
The Department currently maintains 169,094 Family Food Packs (FFPs) and standby funds amounting to P1,033,579,086.81 in the Central Office (CO) and all DSWD field offices (FO) in Mindanao.

“This is not the time to remain divided because of our political affiliations, gender, ethnicity, language, or religion. We need to stand together and to help each other. We must remain watchful and vigilant,” said Sec. Taguiwalo.

“We are one with the rest of the Filipino people in praying for the safety of civilians in Marawi, especially the children, women, and the elderly,” she ended.

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."
