People’s Champ Senator Pacquiao Funds Construction of 1000 Houses for the Homeless Even Before He Became A Government Official!

Manny Pacquiao is definitely a name with a ring to it. Known worldwide as a jack-of-all-trades, from boxing to politics, he has proven it yet again.

The senator, boxer, and basketball player recently funded a project for the construction of 1,000 houses for the less fortunate in his hometown.

Senator Pacquiao’s project is under way and will build 1,000 houses in the Sarangani Province, south of the country.

The best part of it is that the houses won't come at a cost to the people living in them or the taxpayers. It's all privately-funded, straight from the pockets of the 37-year old eight division world champion.

“I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in the Sarangani Province from my own pocket – more than thousand families are the beneficiaries,” he posted on Facebook.

As if the Senator didn't have enough of his plate, he is set to re-enter the ring on November 5 to fight Jessie Vargas, a 28-year-old fighter out of Los Angeles, California.

Vargas is currently 27-1 with 10 knockouts to his name and is ranked 8th in the world, whereas Pacquiao is ranked #1.

"Boxing is my passion. I miss what I’d been doing inside the gym and atop the ring," said Pacquiao, who has won titles in a record eight divisions.
