Google Logo For Abdul Sattar Edhi

Today on Google's home page is a special Google logo, Doodle, for Abdul Sattar Edhi. Abdul Sattar Edhi founded the Edhi Foundation which runs hospitals, homeless shelters, rehab centres, and orphanages across Pakistan.

He himself was penniless, standing on the corners begging for money, which he gave to others to help them with their needs.

Google wrote, "today's Doodle honors Abdul Sattar Edhi, a global-reaching philanthropist and humanitarian who made it his life’s mission to helping those in need."

He was born today 89 years ago in India and passed last year, at the age of 88, on July 8, 2016 in Pakistan.

You can learn more about him on Wikipedia and as Google said "here's to Edhi, whose unwavering commitment to others will always be remembered."
