Manny Pacquiao Triumph Brings Cheer to Typhoon-hit Tacloban

Sunday, November 24, 2013
TACLOBAN CITY -- Thousands of survivors of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) erupted into wild cheers Sunday 24 Nov, to celebrate the victory of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, bringing back laughter and revelry briefly to a central Philippine region that was turned into a corpse strewn wasteland by the powerful storm.

Pacquiao's triumph over American Brandon Rios in Macau served as a rallying point for many still-traumatized survivors, many of whom lost loved ones and their homes to the November 8 typhoon, which killed more than 5,200 people and left 1,600 others missing. Haiyan also damaged or destroyed one million homes, displacing more than three million people.

But on Sunday, many jumped repeatedly in joy as they cheered on Pacquiao, who won by unanimous decision to take the WBO international welterweight title.

I went Cebu last week and found some of the hot Tee-shirt on sales in supporting the homeless people. "Bangon Talocban" means Rise again Taocban!.

I was told that there is long queue in Manila to buy those T-sheet. from peso 199 to 250 each.
