Manny Pacquiao Builds More Homes with Habitat for Humanity

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Don Fernando Miranda Zobel de Ayala, 8th Division World Boxing Champ and Congressman Manny Pacquiao with Habitat for Humanity Asia-Pacific Capital Campaign Steering Committee Mr. Charlie Ayco and Habitat for Humanity Philippines managing director and chief executive officer Architect Bong Recio during the signing of the agreement in Makati. 
You know what really got me thinking this week? While the other guy was flaunting all of this cars and plane on Instagram, our own Manny Pacquiao spent his New Year working with Habitat for Humanity Philippines to get more people some needed decent shelter. This great man has been with the Non Government Organization since a few years ago and he now signs the agreement a few more years, plus a donation of a whopping 5 Million pesos to bring more shelter for the people of Glan in Sarangani Province. The amount will be used to build 195 internationally standardized houses that will benefit hundreds of families made of fisherfolk, street and sari sari store vendors from the province and nearby areas. It will be situated in the Pacman-Tata Yap Ville in Barangay Tango.

The humble Congressman Manny Pacquiao also announced his plans to purchase more land in the future so they would be able to build more permanent houses and build communities that can sustain themselves independently. You can see the character differences between Pacquiao and the other boxer, together with Habitat for Humanity Philippines, they can do more. I admire them a lot and thinking, perhaps if we all do builds every now so often, we'll get more people into better homes soon.
