Adil Najam

This recent photograph from The News shows Abdul Sattar Edhi, probably the greatest living Pakistani, perched on a wheel-chair, collecting donations on a Karachi roadside to buy 1000 new ambulances. The picture, however, is not just a commentary on the humanity of Mr. Edhi but on the givingness of ordinary Pakistanis. A generosity of spirit that no one under-appreciates as much as Pakistanis themselves.

    May Allah give Edhi saheb health and happiness. There are many more organizations such as the Sailani Trust and SIUT as well which are being run by Pakistanis themselves. Please, i request ATP to do a write about these organizations. Try to find out what their daily expenditure is which i am sure must be in millions and how we can help (donations, volunteer anything)
