Displaced Lumad children, who are stuck in Manila due to COVID-19 restrictions, attend a flag-raising ceremony on the first day of classes at the University of the Philippines, Diliman in Quezon City, on Monday. More than a hundred indigenous children from Mindanao sought shelter in Manila since 2018 after their schools were closed due to military operations against alleged communist rebels.
