Manny Pacquiao Joins With Cayman Islands Hospital To Get Kids Free Heart Surgery


Manny’s at it again! Just when I think there couldn’t be any more the boxer, senator, philanthropist, and father could add to his schedule, he’s out there announcing a partnership with a foundation and a hospital in the Cayman Islands to provide free life-saving surgery for impoverished Filipino children.

The partnership is between the Emmanuel & Jinkee’s Heart Foundation and Have a Heart Cayman Islands.

Surgeries will be performed at the Health City Cayman Islands hospital. Details of the project were disclosed at the end of January 2017, when Manny visited the hospital.

The first two children to receive heart surgery have been selected, and will travel from the Philippine’s later this year.

Have a Heart Cayman Islands has a mandate to join with organizations both local and international to provide and subsidize heart surgery for children worldwide.

“I may be a world class champion in the ring, but with all the help and kind support of Have a Heart Cayman Islands, hand in hand, we will all be champions of these children’s hearts,” Manny said.

He was especially impressed by the medical staff at Health City. “I met the doctors and I am so happy and rejoiced after they explained to me what they did,” he said, “They spend so much time here at the hospital and hardly go home as they help people from all over the world. I am so happy to be part of this movement.”

“It is an honor to partner with a living legend to bring life to many future legends across the world,” said the Chairman of Have a Heart Cayman Islands, Harry Chandi.

He continued, “Partnerships like these are not only a blessing to children, but they keep us motivated to raise resources that help deliver world-class medical care to people who need it the most.”
