Abdul Sattar Edhi on Wednesday initiated a begging campaign in Quetta for the flood victims of Balochistan.

Crouched on the roadside in Meezan chowk, the philanthropist and his daughter were collecting money for the thousands of people displaced by the recent flash floods.

Edhi claimed the money collected will be distributed equally amongst the affected. He further appealed to the people to help the victims.

According to Edhi , around 5,000 flour sacks have already been dispatched. More will be sent soon.

Akram Ariff | 11 years ago | Reply May Allah Bless and protect Mr.Edhi. He is one of the few honest and dedicated men left in Pakistan. I gaurantee you that any money sent to him will be used to help the poor and needy, unlike other agencies in Pakistan. He truly deserves the Nobel Pize. In the USA you can send money to his office in New York. I pray to the Almighty that Pakistan gets politicians like him. Thanks again Mr.Edhi for all your good work.
