For decades now, each day he is traveling 25 kilometres to Sofia to beg for money. But Dobri isn’t begging for himself. All the money he has collected from begging he donates to orphanages which are unable to pay their bills. Over the years Dobri has collected and donated 40 000 euros (roughly 55600 dollars)
