According to the Red Cross and other sources, the series of firefights that started in May has so far displaced more than 300,000 civilians and claimed over 700 lives. More than 1,700 residents of battle-zone villages have been rescued to date, but many more are trapped between government troops and the insurgents. Compounding the rising casualty rate is the specter of hunger, homelessness and disease for young and old, Muslim and Christian. Marawi’s hospital and emergency facilities have been devastated by the hostilities, crippling services for crisis victims.
Montero Medical Missions (MMM) led by a Filipino American physician, Dr. Juan M. Montero, II which sends medical missions outside the United States to help alleviate the human toll of war as well as natural calamities would send a 40-ft. seaworthy container with life-saving, used but fully functional hospital equipment and medical supplies.
Your cash donation would help raise $6,000 to cover shipment and trucking costs from the port to refugee camps.
