United in nominating Abdul sattar edhi to receive the noble peace price

The Edhi Foundation is a non-profit unique social welfare program in Pakistan founded by Abdul Sattar Edhi in 1951 as one man operating from a single room in Karachi. This amazing foundation now has over 300 centers across the country including centers all over the world providing 24 hour emergency assistance across Pakistan and also abroad. The foundation also gave relief to the victims of hurricane Katrina. Some of the many services provided include shelter for the destitute, free hospitals, education, healthcare and orphanages. The value of these necessary services cannot be over-estimated in a nation where 60.3% of the population live on under £2 per day and 40 million people live in poverty. The noble and unassuming man is a living saint who has devoted his life to address both the causes and results of such inequity, is now failing in health. He is worthy of recognition of his remarkable achievements during his life-time and will leave a rare humanitarian legacy to continue long after he is gone. Let's all unite and sign this petition and make sure the Nobel Peace Prize Committee honor this man with the Nobel Peace Price.
