Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 20) — You can do more to help meet the needs of those affected by the crisis in Marawi city.

Various organizations have called for donations, either in cash or in kind, to help thousands of internally displaced persons (IDPs) who evacuated from the war-torn city.

The clash in Marawi has been going on for a month now.

Although different organizations address different needs of Marawi evacuees, all of them remind the public to be culturally sensitive since most of the residents are Muslim.

Food donations should be halal, meaning meals should be prepared in a way permissible to Islam culture. Any kind of pork is forbidden.

Muslim women, in addition, are required to wear fully-covered clothes.

Here are some government and private entities accepting donations for those affected by the Marawi crisis:
