Former Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman passed away on Sunday morning. She was 68 years old.
This was confirmed by Vice President Leni Robredo during her weekly radio show over dzXL.
“May napakalungkot na balita na natanggap na si former DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman, namayapa na ngayong umaga,” Robredo said, adding that she was very close to Soliman. Robredo said Soliman helped them when Robredo’s husband, former Interior secretary Jesse Robredo died.
