Eating waterlilies help marawi victim survive war


In an article from Bombo Radyo Cagayan de Oro, a carpenter named Jun Abapo who is one of the victims of the terrorist attacks in Marawi City revealed in an interview that he survived the armed conflict by just eating water lilies, “gabi” leaves and by picking junk foods.

He said that his experiences during the war were terrible since he was forced to live a life of near starvation.

He added that Lake Lanao served as the safest place to hide from the terrorists where lake water and water lilies help him to live.
