Several rehabilitation projects to be provided by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are underway for the recovery of the war-ravaged Marawi City, according to envoy.

UAE Ambassador to the Philippines Hamad Saeed Al Zaabi announced this during his visit to the displaced families of the 2017 siege by Islamic-state linked militants Maute group.

The siege left a trail of massive destruction of homes and property, with thousands of people still in emergency shelters.

Al Zaabi said the rehab efforts in the area are requested by the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation and will be funded by the UAE embassy.

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.
