Dear HOTties,

(cc OSM-PH)

This is not an urgent task, but we are requesting any assistance you can extend.
There is an ongoing military operation in Maguindanao which affected 125K IDPs
[0 and 1].  I am in Cotabato right now assisting the ARMM-HEART (the
regional humanitarian agency) in using OSM in coordinating the
on-going response.

Fieldwork is very challenging due to physical and security conditions.
We created a task to improve the baseamap.  The task is here:

Advance thanks!
