Manny Pacquiao and his team were one day waiting for their vehicle in General Santos City. Jen Manilay, one of his companion that day bought an ice cream bar from an old vendor. She recognized that he’s the same vendor who was selling at the building she is working at.
She bought 10 ice cream bars and gave one to Pacquiao. The Pinoy boxing champ realized that the vendor was old and he immediately told Manilay to call the old man.
The old vendor was shocked when Manilay called him and introduced to Pacquiao. Then, the boxing champ immediately gave him P3,000. While talking with the old man, Pacquiao found out that the old vendor has three kids. Sadly, they are not able to go to school because the money was spent on the medical bills as he recently had a stroke.
The generous senator-boxer added P30,000 to his initial gift to the old vendor. We can say that Pacquiao admired the dedication of the ole man for he’s still selling despite his condition.
We all know that Pacquiao wasn’t born in a well-off family and poverty is not a surprise to him. He definitely understands how does it feel to have nothing. He also assumed that the old vendor didn’t have a house, thus, he asked where he was living.
The ice cream vendor told Pacquiao that he and his family are just renting. So Pacquiao told the old man that he’s giving him a house and lot the following week. Yes, you heard it right!
The man was shocked to what Pacquiao told him and obviously became emotional. With tears in his eyes, he kept thanking Pacquiao for the blessings he received.
It was truly a lucky day for him! And big thanks to the kindness and generosity of Manny Pacquiao!
