PACQUIAO VISITS TYPHOON HAIYAN SURVIVORS


PhilBoxing.com




Boxing Icon Manny Pacquiao is fulfilling his promise to visit and help super-typhoon victims and ease their predicament. Pacquiao and his group, made up of his congressional staff, wife, Sarangani Vice Gov. Jinkee, boxing team and family members flew by helicopter yesterday morning to visit eight towns in Leyte and Samar provinces that were severely hit by typhoon Yolanda three weeks ago.

‘Commitment ko ito na naipangako ko sa mga kababayan nating napinsala ng nagdaang calamities bago ako umalis para lumaban kay (*Brandon)Rios) kaya tutuparin ko kahit ano ang mangyari” Pacquiao said by way ot text message last Friday.

‘This is my way of expressing my gratitude to our kabayans who, despite their sufferings and lack of money had put up banners wishing me good luck in my fight, filled the stadiums to rafters during the fight, then put up banners again congratulating me for my victory,” he said.

“Besides, ayokong mabura sa kanilang mga isip ang pagasang naibigay ng panalo ko kay Rios na may buhay pa pala sa kanila sa likod ng ng kapinsalaang nangyari sa kanila dulot ng bagyo,” Pacquiao said. “I have long been trying to squeeze time tro visit the affected areas, but I just failed to get time because of my preparation for the fight,” he said. “Pagdating ko sanalast week puede na eh pumutok naman yung balitang the BIR has frozen by bank accounts as well as some of my properties, so di ako natuloy.”
Truckloads of relief goods such as clothing and merchandize to provide the immediate needs of the residents of the towns to be visited left General Santos in a convoy, left earlier last week, the Mindanao News reported.

First in the itinerary, according to a Pacquiao staffer in General Santos City, is a visit to the town of Guiuan in Eastern, the first town where the typhoon made its landfall on November 8.

Team Pacquiao is also scheduled to touch base with residents pf Mercedes, Salcedo and Basey in that province before proceeding to Tacloban City to distribute relief goods, among them medicines and packed and canned foodstuff.

A night sleep in Tacloban and another in Ormoc City, bailiwick of congressional colleague Lucy Torres-Gomes wind upo the three-day relief distribution trip.

Pacquiao, who is facing tax charges from the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and party are scheduled to retrun to GenSan and Sarangani Monday.

A fund-raising run in the Sarangani town of Alabel, participated by hundreds of running enthusiasts from GenSan and adjacent towns Friday last Friday.
