Dobri Dobrev, from Bulgaria truly is an incredible man. To start with he is a 100 year old second World War veteran, who lost most of his hearing during the war. Every day he walks several miles from his village to the city of Sofia.
When he gets there he looks like an average beggar, but believe me Dobri is nothing of the sort. When Dobri begs the money is not for himself, not one cent; everything he makes goes straight to the orphanages. In fact over the years Dobri has raised an estimated 40,000 euros for the orphanages, helping them to pay their bills.
