UNICEF’s psychosocial support programs are helping children from Marawi like Jabbar, seen here with his mother, recover from what they experienced during the armed conflict. β€œI want to finish my elementary education,” he said. β€œI want to be a police officer when I grow up and help restore peace and order in Marawi City.” (πŸ“· Bobby Lagsa) *child’s name was changed to protect his identity

It’s #WorldWaterWeek! Did you know that handwashing with soap is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of diseases? This is why we’ve set up handwashing stations beside temporary classrooms in evacuation centers, so that children displaced by the Marawi conflict can stay healthy. (πŸ“· Bobby Lagsa)

Sisters Normina, Norlaila and Nor Ain hid in a basement for two days without food and water, before fleeing Marawi to escape the armed conflict in their city. They now live with a relative in Iligan, and are temporarily enrolled in Iligan City High School where they also participate in psychological first aid sessions to help them recover from what they've experienced. This has enabled Nor Ain to open herself up again to others and make herself feel better. "Peace will ultimately reign in Marawi. We are stronger now," she said.

John and his family fled the armed conflict in Marawi to seek safety in Iligan City. He now spends time at a UNICEF-supported child-friendly space in the evacuation center, where he can play and have his special needs taken care of by health workers. "We have not smiled in the past weeks, but now this handsome boy puts a smile on our faces. We know our situation is challenging. The basics we need are not readily available here, but John still laughs. He has fun with us when it’s play time," John's grandmother said. (πŸ“· Bobby Lagsa)

It's #ThrowbackThursday and we're taking you all the way back to the 1950s! Villagers in Natonin, Mountain Province, receive supplies delivered by UNICEF to help protect children there from malaria, chest disease and malnutrition. To this day, UNICEF's work continues to have a special focus on reaching children with the greatest need – those who live in remote areas, those affected by emergencies, and the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. #tth #unicef #tbthursday

It's #WorldWaterDay! πŸ’§ 14-y/o Lian is worried that pollution and #climatechange will affect the water supply in her community. "If we didn't have water, there would be drought and death. Water is essential. We use water in our daily lives." Here, Lian shows the water her family gets from the tap. "We had to fetch water when I was little. Now we have clean water at home. We sometimes drink the water directly from the tap." (πŸ“· by Mark Berris)

UNICEF facilitated the release of more than 1,800 children involved in military activities of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). This process started in 2009 and involved educating MILF leaders and communities, and establishing systems to monitor and prevent further recruitment and use of children in combatant and support roles. These children now need support from the Philippine government and development partners so they can enjoy their rights to education, health and protection.
