SV Verzosa helps out trolley boy with new pedicab 

MANILA, Philippines – John Erickson Galang, commonly known in their neighborhood as “Pete”, a young man with a lifelong dream of becoming a seafarer, has overcome numerous challenges to embark on a new chapter in his life thanks to a generous act of kindness of Sam “SV” Verzosa.


Pete’s story began at the tender age of 12 when he started pushing trolleys along the railroad tracks to support his family.


Despite a hearing problem, he never lost sight of his aspirations.

However, with the impending halt of operations of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) for the next five years, Galang’s livelihood as a trolley pusher was threatened, as the railway’s closure would significantly impact his earnings.

In the episode of Dear SV, Pete’s dreams received a much-needed boost when SV stepped in.

Instead of leaving him stranded with the demise of his trolley-pushing job, SV gifted Pete with a brand-new pedicab.

The impact of SV’s generosity was palpable, not just for Pete, but for his family as well.
