Son of Abdul Sattar Edhi, Faisal Edhi shared his thoughts on this campaign according to Daily Times. He said, “The main message of the campaign is to appeal public consciousness will simply be that Edhi Sahab’s legacy and mission must carry on. While the people of Pakistan have always supported the Edhi Foundation throughout the year, the holy month of Ramazan has traditionally been the time of the year when public support has reached a peak, and donations to the Foundation, both zakat and non-zakat, have registered huge increase.”
“After the death of Abdul Sattar Edhi, 20 to 30 per cent revenue of the foundation has declined. Therefore, we decided to extend our hand to be a partner with Coca-Cola for the sustainability of the great work. Coca-Cola’s immense expertise and experience in creating a huge momentum for any cause will greatly help the Foundation in its Ramazan fundraising drive.”
Edhi Foundation joined hands with Coca Cola and the limit of doubling the donations for Ramadan is up to Rs 25 million. Faisal Edhi appreciated the association of Coca Cola with all the nonprofit organizations in the past.
As we know, Edhi Sahb lived his whole life in modesty by helping others through the largest welfare organization of Pakistan. Now it’s our duty keep to his legacy and mission alive.
