The government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front will work together to help in the rehabilitation of Marawi City, the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process says in a press statement.

OPAPP says panels have agreed to revive the Joint Coordination, Monitoring and Assistance Center, which was used to rescue trapped civilians during the siege of the city by Islamic State-inspired terrorists.

The JCMAC helped in the creation of peace corridors for the rescue of civilians and for the entry of relief supplies and assistance to those affected by the siege.

Undersecretary Nabil Tan, Deputy Presidential Peace Adviser and Chair of the Government Implementing Panel for the Bangsamoro peace accords, says in the release that the first JCMAC was "a very good testament of the effective partnership that happened between the Philippine government and the MILF during the Marawi siege." 

Mohagher Iqbal, the chair of the MILF Implementing Panel, says the reactivation is "a very modest intervention on the part of the MILF… in partnership with the government."

Vice President Leni Robredo releases a statement a year after the siege in Marawi. She says that even though the battle has ended, the fight to bring back to normal the lives and livelihood of Marawi residents continues.

"Marami pa ring pamilya ang walang permanenteng bahay at maayos na hanapbuhay. Maraming mga mamamayan ang nangangailangan pa rin ng ayuda," she says.

"Sinimulan na ng pamahalaan ang proseso ng rehabilitasyon. Nakiisa ang ating opisina rito sa pagtayo ng Angat Buhay Village sa Barangay Sagongsongan, sa Marawi, na magsisilbing kabahagi ng mga transitory shelter para sa mga nawalan ng tahanan sa pinakanasalantang bahagi ng Marawi. Mahalaga ang mga pagkilos na ito, at marami pang kailangang gawin para makabangon nang tuluyan muli ang Marawi."

 

Bahagi nito ang pagkilala na maliban sa mga gusaling nagiba at buhay na nasira, kailangang pangalagaan ang boses ng mga taga-Marawi sa pagsasagawa ng rehabilitasyon. Ang tinig na pinakamahalagang mapakinggan ay galing sa mga pamayanan na naapektuhan ng digmaan.
