to set up hospital

Tim Tebow, one of America's hottest new sports heroes, will help pay for a children's hospital in the poverty-stricken Philippines where he was born, his charity partners said.

The $3 million, 30-bed facility will open in the southern city of Davao in mid-2013, the US-based charity CURE said in a statement on its website where a video message from the Denver Broncos quarterback was also posted.

"I've always had a a special place in my heart for the country in which I was born and I'm very excited about this project," Tebow said in the message as he appealed for the public to join him in donating to the hospital's fund.
