Together with its 42 dealers nationwide, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) pledged P100-million to help rehabilitate the war-damaged Marawi City in Mindanao.
Some of the urgent needs of the people of Marawi are schools and livelihood. As such, the funds will be focused on rebuilding infrastructure and enlisting new scholars. HARI will also be launching programs to support women’s livelihood.
In addition, the money will also be used to support the government’s long term programs for the area to help the people of Marawi “get back up to their feet.” It will also help funding programs to get more donations in 2018.
In May 23, 2017, members of the rebel group Maute laid siege with the government forces in Marawi City. Civilians fled the area as the battle destroyed their livelihood and infrastructure. After 5 months, Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana announced that the war has ended.
