A life lived under the spotlight is no longer new to Many Pacquiao and his family. Throughout the years of his boxing career, both local and international media establishments have tried to dig in the private life of the Pambansang Kamao.
What we know for a fact is that now Senator Manny Pacquaio truly has a kind heart for the poor because he himself experienced how it is to live a life in poverty.
Recently, Manny became a hot topic on social media after a video of him helping out an ice cream vendor later known as 62-year-old Marcelino Entia and even pledging to build him a home went viral on social media.
Now, just a few weeks after that once in a lifetime moment for the Marcelino, Pacquiao once again proved his being true to his words after photos of the promised home surfaced on the internet.
In an article by Readers Portal Today, the 8-division world champion personally went to his housing project in Barangay Calumpang to personally turn over the house and lot that he promised Marcelino Entia.
The ice cream vendor was even more surprised when he learned that the home is already fully furnished with electricity and water supply. It also has television, kitchen set, electric fan and even bed.
Additionally, Manny also gave scholarship programs to Marcelino’s children, 30,000 pesos cash and a small business so the ice cream vendor could now retire from his work.
Furthermore, the boxer even invited mang Marcelino to his mansion and had dinner with his family. During the dinner, Manny Pacquiao’s mother, Dionisia reminded Marcelino and his family to preserve the blessings that they received. The senator also told the ice cream vendor to keep his faith to God.
Indeed, Pacquiao’s deed is really worthy of the praise he gets all over social media.
