Children affected by the armed conflict in Marawi need our help. According to the United Children’s Fund (Unicef), around 50,000 children have been displaced from the fighting. They have left their homes and schools. Families have sought shelter in the houses of relatives, while some were forced to crowd into evacuation camps. In evacuation centers, they are exposed to health risks, from dehydration, sickness, and hunger.
Celebrated leaf artist Yel Cast is dedicating five paintings (acrylic on canvas) to the cause of helping the children of Marawi. He will also create unique oil pastel-on-dry-medium for givers who will donate USD 10-30 (PhP500-1,500) to this online fundraising drive.
“Responsibility ko bilang isang Filipino Artist na tulungan at iangat ang ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng Arts. Dahil naniniwala ako sa mga simpleng bagay lahat tayo ay may kakayahan at may paraan na tumulong basta gugustuhin natin. Ang mga talento dapat ay ibinabahagi para sa ikabubuti ng lahat like ng arts na palaging nagpapakita ng mga magagandang bagay. Responsibilidad ng bawat Pinoy na mahalin ang kapwa Pinoy at Pilipinas,” Yel points out.
