MANILA, March 30 — Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman said the department's social workers are providing counseling and family therapy to the family members of the three Filipinos who were executed in China Wednesday.

This as Soliman condoled with the families of Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, Ramon Credo and Elizabeth Batain, who were convicted for drug trafficking in China.

Secretary Soliman said that DSWD social workers have been with the trio's family members since Tuesday to provide them counseling.

“We will also discuss with the family members the needed assistance, probably through livelihood, and the children will be provided with immediate educational assistance,” Soliman added.

"Likewise, we appeal to the media to spare the children of the three Filipinos by not dragging them into the issue of their parents’ execution to prevent further trauma,” the DSWD chief said. (PNA) scs/FFC/PR/mec
