Abdul Sattar Edhi was born on February 28, 1928 in Gujarat but then migrated to Karachi after partition. After noticing that people in Pakistan were without shelter, food medicine and clothing, he begged people for donations. Edhi was able to convert a small room he had into a dispensary which serviced the poor. Very soon, people began to trust him and provided him with donations to help the poor, hungry and destitute in Pakistan.

“In 1951, he established the Edhi foundation, which is funded solely by private donations. The foundation, which operates 24 hours a day, provides a variety of social services from homeless shelters to medical care — all free of charge — and has helped thousands of people around the world in times of need. Most notably, the foundation operates the world’s largest volunteer ambulance network in Pakistan. “In my entire life I have driven no other car except my ambulance,” Edhi said.
