A radical group, follower of ISIS, has been waging a campaign of violence terrorizing the city of Marawi.
During the last decades Muslims and Catholics have been working together for the social development and future of their communities in this region of the Philippines.
In the last weeks Marawi has been suffering the consequences of a violent campaign started by a radical minority, a very small but powerful group who identifies itself as follower of ISIS’ doctrine.
This violence has nearly destroyed the city of Marawi, which is inhabited by 95% of Muslims, and 5% of Christians. Most civilians were evacuated from the city.
The Catholic Cathedral of Marawi was completely destroyed, and a priest kidnapped together with nearly a dozen people. They need your prayers today.
