Abdul Sattar Edhi has no need for the introduction, Everyone belongs to every class and culture they know Abdul Sattar Edhi very well. He established the world’s greatest system of volunteer ambulances in Pakistan, an accomplishment that is still specified in the Guinness Book of World Records, alongside his name.
He passed away on July 8, 2016, leaving behind millions of well-wishers that remember him for his selfless, courageous and caregiving spirit. Every person still respects him, and they are not simply restricted to Pakistan. One young artist from London has gone somewhat further, by drawing a wall painting that looks to some extent like the amazing altruist on the Trafalgar Square.
Daniel Swan is an admirer and follower of Abdul Sattar Edhi.
Mr. Swan currently runs a shelter for homeless people.
Interestingly Daniel Swan, before he turned to mural painting and philanthropy, had a good and cushy career in the United States of America. He used to travel a lot. On one of his journeys, he observed how prevalent poverty was in certain parts of the world. He vowed to do something about it.
Inspired by Edhi’s example, David Swan decided to spend a major portion of his earnings on providing food and shelter to homeless people. It is truly heartwarming to see that even without his presence, Abdul Sattar Edhi continues to touch the hearts of people, inspiring them to become a better version of themselves by serving their fellow men and women.
