UNHCR believes in the transformative power of storytelling. We are inviting individuals, families, and communities displaced by last year’s conflict in Marawi to tell their stories with us. By sharing their narratives, we are able to transcend challenges and build a better future filled with hope.
Solaiman and Saada Alip were counting the days to their retirement when conflict in Marawi City broke out a year ago. They were trapped for 16 days as the conflict raged on before fleeing on June 8. Months later, they visit their home, only to discover much of it in ruins.
