Aside from Manny Pacquiao, the Philippines also has another boxing champion by the name of Nonito Donaire Jr. Interestingly, the WBA interim flyweight world champion recently proved that he has a soft heart for the less fortunate. That is because he turned over around 100 houses to the poor victims of Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) in Lemery, Iloilo.
The Super Typhoon struck the country where people lost homes, property, and even loved ones. It was recognized as one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded in history. The devastation it brought was so severe that the rehabilitation has yet to come full circle.
The Filipino champ on his way to Greg Secker Village, as he turns over 100 houses to the victims.
Donaire, better known as the Filipino Flash, helped Yolanda victims together with the help of English businessman Greg Secker and his foundation. They build what is now called “Build a House, Build a Home” project which aims to provide home and shelter to the said victims in Iloilo.
Here is an aerial view of the 100 homes from the helicopter.
The boxing champion shared his excitement on his official Facebook page, seemingly stoked with the life-changing help he is providing. It is worth-noting, however, that this is not Donaire’s first effort in helping the needy.
A couple years back, he also donated a whopping million pesos to help fund a certain housing project for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy (international name Ketsana).
Indeed, Donaire is a champ with a huge heart!
It is really inspiring to see iconic figures helping other people. It only proves that they are always ready to share whatever they have. To you, Mr. Donaire, just keep doing what you are doing! You are truly an inspiration, sir!

Chinese Family Spends 6 Months Working Out Together, Achieves Inspiring Results
The father now looks 20 years younger!
Many people think that losing weight is an easy thing to do as long as you give it a try. Truth is, it is not. It is both difficult mentally and physically, and it will really demand a good amount of pressure from you. A Chinese family, however, has a found a way to make shedding pounds a walk in the park.
They basically did it together for six months, and they really achieved a great transformation within that period. It was Jesse’s, who is a photographer, idea to do the task together and support each other. He even persuaded his father to run alongside with him every day. And it had a positive impact, as his father started to lose passion for life due to his alcohol addiction and beer belly.
The whole family gave up their unhealthy lifestyle and started losing weight together.
The two started fast-walking and eventually gave in to jogging. Adding more exercise routines each day, the pair decided to go to the gym. During the whole process, Jesse kept track of their bodies’ measures every 10 days. And this program did not just stick out to the two. His mother and wife also kept a healthy lifestyle thereafter. ...

Midwife Saves D***g Newborn Baby Despite Lack Of Necessary Equipment
It’s heartwarming to see how she never gave up on the baby.
No mother wants her newborn to stop breathing right after birth but that's what happened to a mother from the Philippines. Fortunately, a persistent midwife, along with the support of the entire medical team, did everything she could just to get the baby breathing again.
In a video posted on social media, the healthcare provider was seen trying to resuscitate the newborn, whose umbilical cord was still attached to the mother. It was obvious that the delivery room lacked the necessary equipment but still, the team was able to use whatever they have to revive the baby. It is presumed that the woman gave birth in a birthing clinic, which could explain the lack of apparatus.
