Children of War: A Rapid Needs Assessment of Orphans in Muslim Mindanao


This report summarizes findings from a rapid assessment of the status of orphans who have lost at least one parent from the wars in Mindanao in the last decade (2009-2019). Many are children of shaheed, or martyrs in the service of the Moro revolutionary fronts, but the study also covers civilians who were killed in skirmishes and other major incidents such as the Marawi crisis. This report was supported by the Australian Embassy in the Philippines and The Asia Foundation under the Cohesion, Advocacy, Resilience and Expansive Engagement (CARE) for Peace in the Philippines Project.
