To help distressed families affected by the siege in Marawi City, the Regional Board of Investment of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (RBOI-ARMM) called its registered firms for donations in a form of cash or relief items.

Lawyer, Ishak Mastura, Chairman of RBOI, in a statement said that this a crucial time for all Bangsamoro people to unite and help. “Our Maranao brothers and sisters are now in their worst situation that is why we asked local companies in the region to share their blessings, show their benevolence and contribute for the early recovery and rehabilitation of Marawi City especially on food supply and other necessities that will carry the victims throughout their daily routines.
“We are very happy and thankful that these companies have positively responded to our call for humanitarian assistance and be part of the solution.”, Mastura further said.
The RBOI employees had raised donations in a form of food and non-food items, cash were converted also into goods. An estimate of 1,000 families will receive the relief goods. In coordination with the ARMM- Humanitarian Emergency and Action Response Team (HEART) under the Office of the Regional Governor, the relief goods given by the registered enterprises were personally delivered by the RBOI employees straight to the relief operation center in Malabang, Lanao del Sur ready for distribution to the evacuees.
