Getting children back into school after emergencies
We asked children displaced by the armed conflict in Marawi: "What do you miss the most?"
Here are their honest answers, as expressed in drawings.
The Marawi crisis has affected around 80,000 children. These children lost their homes, schools, and loved ones.
They are also losing the normalcy of their childhoods.
Some of them are living in overcrowded evacuation centers, while others are staying with relatives or family friends.
They are enrolled in host schools, unfortunately many of which lack resources hence transferee students study in temporary learning spaces such as tents.

hese children have heard and seen things no child should ever experience. Such exposure to violence cannot be good for them, hence the need for continuous psychological support.
We need to make sure that Marawi's children get to enjoy safe, healthy, and happy childhoods they rightfully deserve.
