PDRF, PBSP, MBC, private sector partners rally efforts in Marawi rehabilitation aid

by PLDT Public Affairs | Nov 20, 2017
The Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF), a major private sector coordinating body for disaster management in the country, in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), Makati Business Club and other organizations from the private sector recently announced the formation of a consortium to organize and unify rehabilitation efforts for the war-torn city of Marawi and its affected residents during a summit held today in Makati.

The summit "United for Marawi: A Consortium Initiative on Response, Recovery and Rehabilitation" called on private companies and civil society to align efforts for the post-disaster assistance for Marawi City.

"What happened to my City is devastating, not only in terms of physical infrastructures, economic and livelihood operations but as well as the...damaged social fabric of society. However, these will not prevent us from hurdling any obstacles to bring Marawi back in a better state than it was before with the help of all the sectors of the society. This Business Summit for the Rehabilitation of Marawi City will surely help us rise up again,” said City of Marawi Mayor Majul Usman Gandamra. “With the help of the private sector, the ordeal of our IDPs shall be minimized. Government needs their intervention,” added Governor Bedjoria Soraya Alonto Adiong.

“The private sector has a role to play in the revival of economic activity in Marawi and Lanao del Sur. It will not be easy. It will take years but we owe it to our children to bring Marawi back and make peace work,” said PDRF President Butch Meily.

Several companies pledged their support: US Philippine Society, FF Cruz, PLDT, Gabay Guro, San Miguel Foundation, SM Foundation, Pepsi, Liter of Light, Pacific Global One and Ayala Foundation Inc. among others. Aside from PDRF and PBSP, consortium members include the Makati Business Club, CODE-NGO, the Association of Foundations, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

Officials from government agencies and local government units were also part of the panel discussion including Department of National Defense Secretary and Task Force Bangon Marawi Deputy Chair Delfin N. Lorenzana, Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary and Task Force Bangon Marawi Deputy Chair Mark Villar, City of Marawi Mayor Majul Usman Gandamra, Lanao del Sur Vice Governor Mamintal Alonto Adiong, Jr., Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council Chairperson and Task Force Bangon Marawi Chair Eduardo del Rosario, and National Economic Development Authority Undersecretary Adoracion Navarro.

"This consortium hopes to complement the rehabilitation initiatives of Task Force Bangon Marawi and see where the technical working group can cover gaps and provide aid in the process of rebuilding healthcare, livelihood rehabilitation, infrastructure, utilities, Islamic financing, and other facilities needed by the returning residents," Meily added.

The summit presented the Pledge of Commitment from the heads of the different organizations and Development Partners, as rehabilitation plans are already on-ground and running.
