Manny Pacquiao, the only boxer in the world that is an 8 weight division champion, is known for his fast fists, but one thing that people don’t know about is how much he loves the Philippines, his home country, where he is also a senator.
The fight of Manny Pacquaio doesn’t just happen inside the ring, he also fights poverty with the earnings that he makes inside the boxing ring.
Manny grew up in poverty in the streets of Sarangani Province, a southern province in Mindanao.
Manny usually talks about how he grew up in a cardboard shack with his family, where sometimes he had nothing to eat.
Fast forward to today, Manny has a net worth of over $190 Million USD, and with his amazing fortune, the fighting pride of the Filipino people loves to help the people.
Manny ended up building 1,000 homes for the less fortunate people in his home town.
Talking about the less fortunate, Manny said, “I feel what they’re feeling because I’ve been there. I’ve slept in the street. That was my life before. So hard. That’s why I feel what they’re feeling right now.”
Manny bought a huge property, built 1,000 houses for the less fortunate, and gave them away for free.
Talking about his kind act, Manny said, “I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket more than a thousand families are the beneficiaries.”
It is believed that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has given away nearly $200 Million USD to fund projects that have helped millions of people.
Talking about his projects, Manny said, “Every income I receive in boxing, almost half of it goes to the less fortunate. After each fight, half of my income goes to the poor. But I don’t like to announce it.”
With great power comes great responsibility, thank you for your kind services, Senator Pacman. You are a great example for the generation to come.
