WATCH: Manny Pacquiao hands out money to children in the Philippines

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Manny Pacquiao may have just lost a controversial and gut-wrenching decision to Jeff Horn, but he’s back in his native Philippines and continuing to do a lot of good for the poor children of that nation.

Here, we see Pacquiao handing out bill after bill of cold-hard cash to children in the impoverished nation.

Pacquiao may not be wanting for money after earning $10 million in the Horn fight and another $150 million in his previous bout with Floyd Mayweather, but it’s still awesome to see him take care of his own.

Also important to note here, Pacquiao — currently a senator — has presidential aspirations in the Philippines and has been one of the biggest community organizers in the entire nation. As a local legend, his popularity there is unmatched.

His sense of selflessness is also unmatched.

“This is why I still fight,” Pacquiao said as he handed out the cash.

Good for Pacquiao. This type of community involvement will go a long way in helping the Philippines overcome their current issues with poverty, drugs and crime.
