Manny Pacquiao is more than a world-class athlete or a Filipino politician. He’s a compassionate activist who paid for 1,000 homes to be built to help out underprivileged families in his hometown.
Pacquiao proclaimed his good deed:
I’m so happy giving this houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket more than thousand families are the beneficiaries.
“I feel what they’re feeling because I’ve been there,” he told USA TODAY Sports a few years ago. “I’ve slept in the street. That was my life before. So hard. That’s why I feel what they’re feeling right now.”
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.
The act of compassion might have been a calculated political move, but nonetheless, 1,000 families have secure living spaces thanks to the Senator’s generosity. That, we believe, is worth celebrating.
