The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) on Thursday expressed their deepest condolences to the family of the late Michelle Silvertino Beato, a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiary, and a Social Amelioration Program cash recipient.

DSWD Field Office V Municipal Action Team (MAT) has reached out to Marlyn Silvertino, Michelle’s mother to deliver financial assistance amounting to P15,400.00. Michelle’s mother has already taken custody of her four grandchildren, aged 11 to 4 years old.

In addition, the DSWD also promised to provide the following:
  • Access to Livelihood through DSWD’s Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) for Michelle’s brother and sister, who serve as custodians for the four surviving children;
  • Educational assistance for the three children who are in grade school; and
  • Food assistance for ten days.

Since Michelle was a 4Ps beneficiary, DSWD MAT shall process for the change in grantee. DSWD will also assess the children and explore alternative child care, as necessary.
