Google honours Abdul Sattar Edhi with doodle


Internet giant Google paid tribute to renowned philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi last week with its doodle, on the eve of his 89th birthday. The Google Doodle appeared in the UK and some other European countries, as well as Pakistan, the US, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. It portrayed him with the ambulance of the Edhi foundation, a mother with two kids, hospital home, a pet dog and a book.
Google praised Edhi for helping people all around the world. Although there was some confusion over his actual birthdate (Edhi himself was unsure and believed he was born between 1926 and 1928). However, Google told a tech-website Wired that it got the February 28 date directly from Edhi's family.
The Edhi foundation has helped thousands of people around the world in times of need, including survivors of Hurricane Katrina and thousands of Pakistani orphans. The foundation provides super-efficient ambulance service, and Edhi ambulances are welcomed as friendly neighbours throughout Pakistan.
