Inquirer: @MannyPacquiao tours devastation of Tacloban, finds two bodies

Manny PacquiaoFilipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao toured one of the worst hit villages of Tacoban City Monday and found two bodies in the ruins of Typhoon Haiyan, also known in the Philippines as Yolanda, reports the Inquirer.

“In my entire life, I have seen nothing like this. The damage is just so enormous. I cannot imagine how the people can manage without help from the government,” Pacquiao said.

The two term congressman in the Philippines pledged to start a fundraising campaign in the United States for the survivors.

“At least his visit makes us forget the calamity. Thank you for visiting us. We will never forget you, Pacman,” Couple Roland said.

Pacquaio left the people he saw with words of encouragement.

“I know you can rise again just like me. In the past, I, too, fell. But I persevered to get up and I rose again,” Pacquiao said.

“Don’t lose hope. As long as we live, there is hope. We can manage to return to normal living. Never forget God. He will never abandon us,” he said.
