The projects will include rehabilitation of schools, construction of child youth center, construction of a center for orphans and a rural health unit in nearby Butig town in Lanao del Sur.

The budget for the projects will be released as soon as the local government submits the list of beneficiaries, according to UAE IT Manager for the Philippine Embassy, Faisal Mohd Nabil.
