IDP Protection Assessment Report, AFP vs Pro-ISIS militants in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur, Issue No. 5
The displaced population continues to face prevailing protection concerns. These include, among others:
1. Diminished frequency of humanitarian assistance, particularly food, water and consumable non-food items.
2. Post data cleansing has revealed sectoral gaps, including: a) inequitable distribution of humanitarian assistance, with home-based IDPs receiving far less aid than IDPs in evacuation centers, b) irregular distribution of humanitarian assistance, with home-based IDPs not receiving assistance, while non-IDPs in host communities receiving assistance, and c) observed tension among IDPs as well as between home-based IDPs and host families.
