Edhi, the man, the idea

KARACHI: He created a charitable empire out of nothing, masterminding Pakistan’s largest welfare organisation. Today, Abdul Sattar Edhi is revered by many as a national hero.

Content with just two sets of clothes, he sleeps in a windowless room of white tiles adjoining the office of his charitable foundation. Sparsely equipped: it has just one bed, a sink and a hotplate.
