MANILA, Philippines - In this season of giving, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or the UN Refugee Agency, invites you to share the gift of hope and empowerment to thousands of families displaced by conflict and violence.
The fighting in Marawi City in southern Philippines from May to October 2017 has displaced nearly 360,000 people. Meanwhile, more than 600,000 stateless Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh to escape escalating violence in Myanmar since late August 2017.
Araullo has recently visited Bangladesh to shoot his documentary on the plight of the Rohingya refugees. Araullo's first "i-Witness" documentary will air on GMA-7 on December 2. -Rappler.com
