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!
What do you think about Donaire’s efforts in helping the victims of Typhoon Yolanda? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
