It's been almost five years since the world's greatest philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi left us. While his death left a gaping hole in everyone's hearts, we still try to honour him and his work from time to time. People across the country have come forward with several ways to honour the incomparable humanist and pay tribute to the legend he was.
From scribing poetry to visiting Edhi homes, Pakistan is doing all it can to ensure that the greatest man to serve the country is remembered forever. A few artists shared on social media their love for Edhi Sahab through paintings. Now, in Quetta, a statue of Edhi has been erected. Made by sculptor Ishaq Lehri, the life-size statue of the late philanthropist has been placed at Edhi Chowk in the city.
Previously, Edhi's efforts for humanity have also been recognised globally. Daniel Swan, a British social worker recently drew a mural of Edhi in Trafalgar's Square, London. He was moved by Edhi's efforts towards humanity and created the mural to honour the late philanthropist. Swan is a part of a UK-based organisation called People of Perception. On the website, he explains why he started helping out the homeless.
Swan writes, "I used to make what many would call a lot of money, working for one of the worlds largest corporations, doing nothing of value for humanity."
