Pakistan's non-profit Edhi Foundation headed by celebrated humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi on Tuesday refused to accept the Rs 1 crore donation offered by Indian PM Narendra Modi.
Edhi Foundation gave shelter to India's deaf & dumb Geeta for years in Pakistan and has been instrumental in sending her back to India to be with her family. After Geeta's return in India, Modi announced Rs 1 crore donation for Edhi Foundation as a token of gesture.
However, Abdul Sattar Edhi politely declined to accept the donation and at the same time thanked Narendra Modi. While addressing a press conference, Abdul Sattar Edhi's Son Faisal Edhi said Edhi Foundation have a policy of not to accept donation from any Government including Pak Govt. He also requested the Indian government to use Rs 1 crore for hearing and speech impaired children in India.
