Is this the world's most dangerous commute?
One way to travel in the Philippine capital, Manila, is by trolley.

Passengers choose this unofficial transport service because it's quicker and cheaper than other options.

For the homeless community that runs the illegal service, it puts food on the table. But it's also incredibly dangerous.https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-46802498/is-this-the-world-s-most-dangerous-commute

These people are admirable despite of their life's situation, they still have those smiles on their lips. The courage and the determination to live is awesome. May God bless these people and they may get the help that they need too.

There is enough food for everyone but sadly the governments are the ones who control your life, not just in the Philippines but every country in the world they can either make you dependent on them or they can let you thrive.

The Philippine Government should focus in helping these poor community or poor people than ranting and cursing their political rivals.... it's a big reality but the government is still ignoring it. How sad, but thankful to those NGO's helping out some of poorest areas in the Philippines to be productive.

Actually, people living near the railways were offered a relocation place on nearby provinces. They accepted and sell the relocation site and return to their places near the railway, though it was already demolished. They will build a new house and prefer to live that way. Reason.... Coz there's a lot of opportunities in Manila than the provinces. Job opportunities should be present near the relocation area to keep them there.
