506 Wheelchairs for Kids on their way to Pakistan (EDHI & Al-Khidmat Foundation)

On the 14th of December Mr shaoquett moselmane joined by his parliamentary colleague the Hon Amanda Fazio MLC NSW and others will travel to Pakistan to officially hand over the Wheelchairs and start what might be a long term humanitarian relationship between philanthropists from across the oceans. A 40Ft Container carrying 340 Wheelchairs will be delivered to the EDHI Foundation. Edhi’s founder is Abdul Sattar Edhi who established the first clinic in 1951.


Edhi foundation is the most trusted name in Pakistan when it comes to relief work within distressed areas in Pakistan and the rest of the world.

Edhi foundation is a Non-Profit organization that has been in the business of providing social services like medical care, emergency services, air ambulances, burial services, mental habitats, old homes, child welfare services, abused women safe houses and training facilities for the disadvantaged.. Foundation works round the clock, without any discrimination on the basis of colour, race, language, religion or politics. The Foundation modifies the phrase “Live and let live” to “Live and help live”.

Edhi emphasizes the importance of safeguarding the basic human rights, regardless of religion, caste or creed. “My religion is humanitarianism… which is the basis of every religion in the world”, Says Founder Edhi. He has persisted upon his mission of humanitarianism for the past 56 years, and is therefore popular among followers of all the existing religious sects in Pakistan.

A second 20Ft container of 166 Wheel Chairs will also be delivered to Al-KhidmatFoundation.


Al-Khidmat Foundation Pakistan is one of the leading, non-profit and independent organisation, wholly dedicated to humanitarian services. Though Al-Khidmat Foundation officially registered in 1990 as an NGO, it has an extensive record of public service, going as far back as the creation of Pakistan. Providing shelter, feeding and treating refugees, and rescuing victims has always been the hallmark of Al-Khidmat Foundation.

Al-Khidmat workers and volunteers continue to work tirelessly for providing relief to affected people throughout the country. Their dedicated services include Rescue & Relief, Rehabilitation and Development, Education, Healthcare, Community Services, Microfinance, and of course, Care for Orphans.

“I am looking forward to flying to Pakistan with my colleague the Hon Amanda Fazio MLC and am proud to be delivering these wheelchairs to two of many humanitarian Pakistani organisations that I know will cherish the opportunity to deliver the wheelchairs to the children in need”. Said Mr Moselmane.
