The Department of Social Welfare and Development provided financial and academic assistance to the family of criminology student Ahldryn Bravante following his death due to suspected hazing.
In a statement released by DSWD on Friday, the department provided the family with P10,000 in cash assistance, P40,000 for burial expenses, and educational assistance for Bravante’s two siblings and six-year-old daughter.
“The loss of a loved one is an incredibly distressing and overwhelming experience, and the DSWD is committed to supporting families in their time of need,” said DSWD Assistant Secretary for Strategic Communications and spokesperson Romel Lopez.
He said the DSWD was committed to providing further assistance to the Bravante family during their period of grief.
Four out of the six suspects in police custody have been charged with violating the anti-hazing law, while others remain at large. —VBL, GMA Integrated News
