Edhi Foundation: A South Asian Charity in Lebanon

Folks will remember that, after the Earthquake in South Asia last year, I and other Pakistanis were quick to recommend the Edhi Foundation as one organization we would recommend as reliable, effective, and not religiously-focused. (See: http://ifaqeer.blogspot.com/2005/10/who-do-pakistanis-turn-to.html)

Now, in this time of devastation in Lebanon, the Edhi Foundation is one direct South Asian engagement with that crisis on the ground. Edhi Saahab himself is in Lebanon:

I am putting this on the table as a possible resource for people and groups to maybe support and provide as a reference to others. Better than blindly supporting charities that might have ideological or other aspects to them that could be problematic.
