Senator Manny Pacquiao on Saturday challenged his fellow politicians to share part of their wealth with the poor during a visit to his home province of Sarangani on Saturday.

He said that if only rich politicians would all pitch in and share their wealth to the poor, not a single Filipino would go hungry and no one would ever have to feed on scraps like he used to do.

“If all these rich politicians could also share their wealth and would stop stealing from people, not a single Filipino would ever experience hunger and our country would be a lot better,” Pacquaio said.

The boxer-turned-senator said his visit was to “pay homage and provide aid to the people who helped him when he was still very poor and his family had to eat scraps just to survive.”

Speaking before residents of the municipality of Malapatan, Pacquaio recalled the hardships that his family had to go through just to be able to fight hunger.

He said there were times when he had to collect fish gills from the market and cook them as lunch or dinner, or both. He also had to collect rotten bread from the bakery where he worked as “panadero” just to feed his mother and his siblings.

He related that his mother Dionisia would just cry in despair as she advised her children to drink plenty of water just to fill their empty stomach.
