Last Tuesday, our country faced one of our most challenging times this year when Marawi City, Lanao del Sur was attacked by Maute group, who are known to be sympathizers of international terrorist group ISIS. News websites have published the sides of the government forces and personal accounts from our fellow Filipinos who are trapped in the city while chaos and violence ensued.

Read more about it here:

It's been a difficult time, especially for the people of Marawi who are caught in this violent exchange between government forces and the militant group. But aside from keeping them in our prayers, we can help, too.

Various organizations need all the help they can get for our fellow Filipinos, Candy Girls. So if you can, please do allot some time to find the organization nearest you and offer your help.
