"I pray for him every day," Bilquis Edhi on the humanitarian's 89th birthday

KARACHI: No signs of celebration were found at Edhi Head Office, Mithadar on humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi’s 89th birthday Tuesday.

Speaking to Geo News, Bilquis Edhi said: “We never even celebrated his birthday while he was alive.”

“We were unaware of the day he was born. I pray for him every day. Today I will make extra effort to pray for the departed soul,” added the globally acknowledged humanitarian’s wife.

Discussing the future direction of Edhi Foundation, Bilquis Edhi said it continues to operate as smoothly as it was while Edhi was alive. “Edhi Foundation’s operations did not stop even on the day he (Edhi) passed away.”

“Faisal will take some time to fill his father’s shoes,” she said.

Edhi passed away on July 8, last year. Google honoured the philanthropist on his 89th birth anniversary by changing its logo to a doodle or illustration of the humanitarian.
