Pambansang Kamao' and now Senator Manny Pacquiao shared his personal initiative to help his less fortunate countrymen by giving away about $200 million on projects that will lend hand to poor Filipinos.
Pacquiao said, "Every income I receive in boxing, almost half of it goes to the less fortunate."
"After each fight, half of my income goes to the poor. But I don't like to announce it."
Forbes reported that Pacquiao has a total of $500 million income from career purses and endorsement.
Some of the projects which were supported and sponsored by the boxer Senator includes the building of 1,500 homes in Mindanao and the purchase of new boats for fishermen in a coastal community.
He insisted that he still needs to continue fighting to be able to do more charity works for the less fortunate people.
Aside from his boxing career, he is also working as a senator where he sits on 15 committees and chaired two among it.
"I enjoy politics because I do not have a hidden agenda. I serve honestly," he said.
