Though he lost the fight, Manny Pacquiao earned millions of dollars from the tournament with US Floyd Mayweather. From there, he was able to sponsor the construction of 1000 homes for poor families in his hometown.
“I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket more than thousand families are the beneficiaries.”
On May 19, 2016, the Asian world class boxing champ, registered his groundbreaking victory in Filipino politics by winning a senatorial seat.
While many attributed his gesture to political motives, many others still applaud the good he has done. Giving 1000 families a place to call home is a massive and crystal clear act of kindness that will go a long way for his people.
Manny says he is still working on the construction of more homes.
“As faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms, each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others. I’m still building more because I always believe what the bible says offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”
More than his achievements, the Senator who would prefer to be known as a practicing Christian has shown empathetic leadership by feeling with the homeless people in his constituency.
As popularly called, Manny was born as Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao on December 17, 1978.
As far as boxing goes, he is one of the world’s greatest boxers of all time.
