The Mayor of Bulgaria's Kocherinovo municipality has awarded 22-year-old Lyuben Kastrev, who embarked on life-saving missions multiple times in February.

Kastrev, helped by his horse, and risking his life, waded miles in deep snow to bring supplies to fellow villagers in a remote region of southwestern Bulgaria during the February harsh winter spell.

The young man was praised for his actions and given a monetary award of BGN 300 from the municipal budget for such occasions.

"I thank you for helping people in such harsh conditions, people in the most remote locations. I thank God for guarding you, because you risked your life and health to help others," the Mayor said during the ceremony.
