Pakistan mourns Abdul Sattar Edhi’s death
Philanthropist, social worker, a slogan of welfare and humanity, Abdul Sattar Edhi is no more.
The head of Edhi Foundation breathed his last at the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) on Friday after kidney failure.
The philanthropist was brought to SIUT after he had trouble breathing and was subsequently put on ventilator.
Social media quickly lit up in honour of the man whose work uplifting the nation’s destitute and orphans cemented his place in the hearts of Pakistan’s masses.
“He was a real gem and asset for Pakistan. We have lost a great servant of humanity.”
Others lauded him as “the greatest Pakistani”, calling his death a “national tragedy”.
