Bulgaria: Where the Most Generous People Live?

Bulgaria is among the last in the ranking of 126 countries.


A large-scale study of people's willingness to donate money or help others in the first place by generously Americans, writes Di Welt.

Charity Aid Foundation's analysis has taken a decade and reached 1.3 million people in 126 countries.

The results show that Americans, who have consistently demonstrated a high willingness to donate money to help people in dire straits, come first. After them, however, second, Myanmar is unexpected. The 9th and 10th places also ranked relatively poor countries such as Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

The foundation explains the generosity of people in these Asian countries with religious traditions - Buddhist and Muslim.

New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands are also in the top ten.

For its part, Bulgaria ranks 120th place. Along with our country are Russia (117th), Croatia, Montenegro, Lithuania, Palestinian Authority, Serbia, Yemen, Greece, China, which ranks 126th.

The report is based on 3 questions to the respondents:

In the last category, Bulgaria ranks last but before China with only 5% who answered ''yes'' to this question.
