- EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The cessation of hostilities between the Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) continued to be respected in the first half of the year, furthering the return and resettlement of the internally displaced people. However, the conflict-affected populations’ high level of vulnerability and the perseverance of violence connected to other armed groups and to clan violence (locally referred to as rido) have contributed to the persistence of humanitarian needs.
I always sort of had an idea that women and girls living in extreme poverty suffered a bit more than men from disasters like war, a flood, an earthquake or a drought -- it just seems logical, if you think about it.
