Abdul Sattar Edhi Saheb is a prominent Pakistani philanthropist, social activist and humanitarian. He is the founder and head of the Edhi Foundation, the largest non-profit social welfare organisation in world.
Edhi Saheb has been running the Edhi Foundation in Pakistan for the better part of six decades. The foundation owns the world’s largest ambulance service, and operates free nursing homes, orphanages, clinics, women’s shelters, food kitchens, and rehabilitation centers for drug addicts and mentally ill individuals all across the country.
Edhi Saheb has remained a simple and humble man. To this day, he owns two pairs of clothes, has never taken a salary from his organisation and lives in a small two bedroom apartment over his clinic in Karachi.
He has been recommended for a Nobel Peace prize by the Prime Minister of Pakistan. In 1985 Edhi Saheb received the Nishan-e-Imtiaz from the Government of Pakistan. The Guardian called him ‘a legendary charity worker known for his asceticism’. He has been called the greatest living humanitarian in the world. 
Henry Dunant was the founder of the Red Cross, and the first recipient of Nobel Peace Prize. In 1901 he received the first Nobel Peace Prize together with Frédéric Passy, making Dunant the first Nobel laureate.
This year Nobel should go to the legendary humanitarian worker who has invested not only his personal life but his whole family for this cause.
