98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost most of his hearing in the second world war, has spent decades traveling 25 kilometers by foot every day for decades, decked in his homemade clothes and leather shoes, from his village to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.

a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that this man, who lives entirely off his state pension of 80 euros, has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches, as well as the utility bills of orphanages.

here is an article on the man
