The Passing of Humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi – His legacy will live on

On behalf of the Board and staff of IDRF, we are shocked and distraught to learn of the passing of such an esteemed individual Abdul Sattar Edhi.

Words cannot adequately capture the immense impact that Abdul Sattar Edhi has had on the poor people of Pakistan, nor the profound depth of our grief at his passing. The number of lives he has not only saved, but uplifted from poverty and despair, is immeasurable.

“I work for the suffering of the common man, something I am very proud of and will continue to do.” Abdul Sattar Edhi

At IDRF we are feel honoured and privileged to have had the opportunity to work closely with Abdul Sattar Edhi & his son Faisal in supporting the ambulatory program that is being run in Karachi.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Edhi’s family and the people of Pakistan who have lost so much. At the same time, we rejoice for the gift of his life and legacy, and lift it up as an example to us all to dedicate our lives in the service of justice, particularly for the poor.

May Allah SWT grant him jannatul firdaus, and rest his soul in peace.
