On 23rd May 2017 hundreds of Islamic militants began a five-month siege that left 1,000 people dead and more than 300,000 displaced.
The clearing of undetonated bombs and landmines has delayed more than 2,000 families from returning.
There are also more than 11,000 families still living with relatives and friends.
Religious freedom charity Open Doors has been providing food, water, and clothing to people in evacuation centres since the siege began.
A fieldworker from the charity said: "I'm still sad that until now some of the believers are still in the temporary shelter.
"They are continuously praying that the LGU (local government unit) will allow them to go back to their area and rebuild their houses again.
"By God's grace they were able to face the discomfort and thrive amidst difficulties, but they still long to go back to their community.
"Many of the believers were scattered in different communities in Marawi and far from the church, but I am encouraged that during fellowship meetings and worship they took time to come together and strengthen each other."
Since liberation was declared on 22nd October 2017, Open Doors has worked through local contacts to provide financial support to Christians to help them to rebuild their homes or start small businesses.
