Manny Pacquiao

Boxer Manny Pacquiao waves to crowds during a motorcade in Manila, Philippines after arriving from Las Vegas, Nevada, May 13, 2015.

Instead of worrying about how much money he can earn for his next fight, Filipino pugilist Manny Pacquiao is spending his own money to build hundreds of houses for the homeless.

Pacquiao, the 36-year-old boxing sensation vying to be elected senator in the Philippines,

is giving away 150 housing units to the homeless in Bales village, Maasim town, where he serves as a congressman. Pacquiao reportedly spent P28.5 million, or about $604,000, of his own money on the project, known as Pacman Village, and gave God the glory.

“Give thanks to God for what you have received today. It’s a gift from Him,” said Pacquiao in a PhilBoxing.com report. “He’s just using me to help you. Take good care of this property and don’t sell it.”
