Pakistan is undoubtedly blessed to have a noble human being like Abdul Sattar Edhi who has been serving the whole of humanity selflessly throughout his life. People like him are hardly seen in today’s world with such righteous and pious ambition of human’s well being.
Edhi started his services by establishing his first clinic in 1951,and later on he expanded his services by making a nonprofit organization called Edhi Foundation providing social services like medical care, emergency services, air ambulances, burial services, mental habitats, old homes, child welfare services, abused women safe houses and training facilities.
Edhi Foundation has sheltered a number of homeless, has saved millions of lives, supported many afflicted women and orphans. The work of Edhi Foundation has now extended beyond Pakistan and has spread out on an international scale.
Today branches of Abdul Sattar Edhi International Foundation are providing regular services in New York, London and Dubai, while preliminary work for starting branches in Bangladesh, India, Ethiopia, Sudan, Yemen and Afghanistan has already been completed.
This is a huge achievement made by Abdul Sattar Edhi by his matchless efforts and endless untiring struggle. He started all of his own but today people all over the world are supporting and financing Edhi Foundation having their supreme trust in his divine soul.
His immensely selfless services have comforted uncountable stricken minds. Goodness still prevails In today’s world of chaos and evilness because of such beautiful souls. Pakistan needs more people like Abdul Sattar Edhi who can devote their lives for humanity.
May God bless him long and healthy life and enable us to follow his footsteps.
