The Humanitarian Response Consortium said a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Marawi City.

Kevin Lee, one of the convenors of the Humanitarian Response Consortium assisting relief operations in Marawi, said they continue to monitor the situation of displaced Marawi residents in evacuation centers.

Lee also said despite the government's response, gaps on critical needs remain. He said hygiene, water and sanitation, and trauma support for internally displaced people must soon be in place. 

He added there is a need to capacitate evacuees and help ease the pressure on the government.
