Otso Diretso senatorial candidate Florin “Pilo” Hilbay and his girlfriend, actress Agot Isidro visited the war-torn area of Marawi City last Monday.

Hilbay has called on for the swift rehabilitation of the city which was devastated two years ago after it was held under terror siege.

“Yesterday, we went to Marawi as part of our 7-day itinerary for Mindanao. Ang takeaway ko: hindi lang rehabilitasyon sa imprastraktura ang dapat mangyari, kundi isang tunay rehabilitasyon na magbabalik ng dignidad at pangarap sa mga biktima rito,” Hilbay said in a tweet

Meanwhile, Isidro said she felt despair after seeing the devastated area.

“Seeing the devastated Marawi, I was filled with despair. Yes, there are decent relocation centers, but these are temporary. I can only imagine their desire to go back to their normal lives, after almost 2 years. But how can life be truly normal, after all that? #BangonMarawi,” Isidro said in her tweet.
The actress said she was grateful for the warm welcome when they visited the torn city.

“In true Filipino fashion, the Maranaos accommodated us warmly. Masarap ang mga goodies na hinanda. At masarap din ang mga ngiti at mga words of support. Salamat, Marawi,” she said
