Some of the families who fled Marawi siege sought refuge as internally displaced people in a small Maranao town in Delabayan, Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte. In 2018, they received their new home at the Hope Marawi 100 village in Delabayan. The village serves as permanent housing for families who have decided to relocate. Mona and her family have designed their kitchen according to their needs. Because the families who decided to relocate to the village are part of the process of creating their houses, they are able to design certain aspects of their shelter.

Mona’s sister is among the recipients of the housing in Hope Marawi. Her family relocated to Delabayan in the midst of the Marawi siege.
