Emergency and Humanitarian Program


Program description

Given the serious humanitarian crisis that befell Mindanao, MPC has enhanced its work from ceasefire monitoring to humanitarian protection, dubbed as “Sagip Sibilyan”, in order to extend direct humanitarian assistance, from advocacy to capacity building interventions, to thousands of innocent civilians who became forced and direct victims of internal displacement, human rights abuses and military repression. Dubbed as “Sagip Sibilyan”, Bantay Ceasefire’s work is focused on alleviating the suffering of the civilians who are caught in the conflict through a programmatic humanitarian protection work. The program covers work on early warning, disaster response and promotion of human rights. Furthermore, it also included providing legal services or referral of cases involving violations of human rights and war crimes in order to break the impunity for these abuses. Following the establishment of Sagip Sibilyan, MPC opened Civilian Protection Component (CPC) outposts in an all-women contingent in Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte on November 15, 2010. The field office covered the provinces of Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte.
