Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Giving Day 30 – Edhi Foundation

Our Ramadan Giving series highlights the amazing work charities are doing and showcases their special Ramadan campaigns, giving us all the opportunity to support, donate and do a little good insh’Allah

Ramadan Giving Day 30: Edhi Foundation
Edhi Foundation is the largest and most organised social welfare system in Pakistan. The Foundation works round the clock, without any discrimination on the basis of colour, race, language, religion or politics. They have pursued their mission for the last five decades bringing about a remarkable wave of change in the social attitude of Pakistanis towards community welfare, by instilling in ordinary citizens, a consistent desire to participate in public welfare programs.

The Foundation is known for the fleet of 1800 ambulances it runs round the clock in Pakistan, but the service also ensures access to air and marine ambulances in the form of rescue helicopters and boats. They were one of the first at the scene at the recent air crash in Karachi, alongside the Pak army.

Edhi Foundation is also known for the 18 homes it has set up all over Pakistan. Among the 8500 residents are abandoned and orphan boys and girls, intellectually disabled and physical disabled people, homeless and helpless men and women as well as women and children from domestic violence backgrounds

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." ~ Quran 2:245

Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: "The best of people are those that bring most benefit to the rest of mankind." (Daraqutni)
