Seventh death anniversary of Abdul Sattar Edhi

Abdul Sattar Edhi, often referred to as the “Angel of Mercy,” died on July 8th, 2016 in Karachi after a prolonged illness. On this solemn occasion, the nation has come together to pay homage to the man who dedicated his entire existence to serving humanity selflessly.

The philanthropist’s charitable journey commenced with a humble dispensary in Karachi, which gradually evolved into the Edhi Foundation—an unprecedented organization providing a wide range of social services, including medical care, rehabilitation centers, orphanages, morgues, and burial services.

Edhi devoted his life to helping those in need, regardless of their background or social status. His foundation’s services expanded across Pakistan, and Edhi’s unwavering dedication inspired others to join his cause.
