Abdul Sattar Edhi left us on July 8, 2016. But even when he has gone, his name, his work, his kindness live on in the form of Edhi Foundation.
Edhi was born in Bantva, Gujarat, British India in 1928, and moved to Karachi where he started his charitable activities when an Asian flu epidemic hit the city. The same year, he bought his first ambulance and the rest is history as he continued to work for humanity along with his wife Bliquis Edhi. By the time of his death Edhi was father-figure to around 20,000 children.
People have come forward with their toughtful gestures, wishing the ‘Angel of Mercy’ on his birthday and thanking him for his existence.
