World Vision puts up playground and mural benches as child-friendly spaces in Marawi
As part of World Vision’s goal to promote child safety and peace, playgrounds and mural benches are set up in Marawi City.
Through the Marawi Peace and Protection Project, World Vision was able to build playgrounds three schools in Marawi City and 6 mural benches are built in schools and displacement sites.
The high rate of children feeling unsafe in their environment can be attributed to the armed-conflict that happened in the city. “It has been two years since the warfare happened in the city. As the city rebuilds, we ensure that there are spaces in the community where children can play and feel safe,” shares Adonis Casinillo, the response manager of World Vision’s Marawi Response. “The bench murals showcase the colorful Marawi culture while promoting peace.”
