Pacquiao offers bout to typhoon victims

MANILA, Philippines - Manny Pacquiao just can’t help but suffer from inside as Filipinos continue to reel from the harsh effects of the calamities brought about by tropical storm “Ondoy” and Typhoon “Pepeng.”

Pacquiao is training in Baguio City, a mountainous area hit hard by last week’s typhoon, which has caused the death to hundreds of people due to landslides and flash flooding.

As he prepares for his Nov. 14 fight with Miguel Cotto, Pacquiao keeps himself glued on what’s happening around the country, and said he’s dedicating his next fight to the countless victims.

“Sa labang ito, kayong lahat ang aking inspirasyon (For this fight, you will be my inspiration),” Pacquiao who composed a short prayer which he texted to friends the other day.

“Let us continue to pray for each and everyone,” he said.

The world’s greatest fighter today expressed confidence that the people, despite all their personal sufferings, will get back on their feet, pick up the pieces and move on.

“Alam kong walang bagyo o kalaban ang makakapagpatumba sa magiting na Pilipino (No storm is strong enough to bring us Filipinos down),” he reported from Baguio City yesterday.

“At asahan ninyo, palagi ako sa inyong mga tabi upang maibigay ko ang kahit na maliit na tulong na nagmumula sa aking puso (And count on it, I will always be by your side, and help in my own little way),” he added.

Last week, Pacquiao broke camp to help the victims of tropical storm “Ondoy” in Metro Manila. He braved the stormy weather, taking a five-hour drive from Baguio to Manila to personally help distribute relief goods to victims.

“Huwag ninyo sayangin ang pagkakataon na tumulong kung kaya ninyo (Don’t waste the opportunity to help when you can). At patuloy kayong magdasal, kahit walang tayong problemang hinaharap (And continue to pray even when there’s no problem to face),” he said.
