Abstract:

The article analyses different activities undertaken by the aid movement in Dobrudja which was launched after the act of unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia on 6 September 1885. It throws light on the activity of the subsidiary committees in major cities – Dobrich, Silistra and Balchik. Attention is paid to the aid campaign for fund raising, providing food and clothing, which was organized among Bulgarians in Northern Dobrudja. Three volunteer detachments were equipped with the funds raised and they fought selflessly during the Serbo-Bulgarian war of 1885 defending the Unification of Bulgaria.
