  5. 5. Development (Cont.) • JHOOLAS (BABY CRADLES) At most of the emergency Edhi Centres, "Jhoolas" (baby cradles) are installed where unwanted infants can be left. These abandoned babies are then taken into custody and given shelter in Edhi Homes • HIGH-WAYS PROJECTS : Under this project, it is planned to construct five hundred Edhi Centres in order to cover a sizeable population on all highways ,The existing centres provide first aid to accident victims and arrange for their speedy transfer to the nearby hospitals.
  6. 6. EDHI DESCRIBED IN 4 POINTS • Firstly, Edhi Foundation is the largest and most organized social welfare system in Pakistan. • Secondly, it is a unique example of what ordinary people can achieve through sincerity of purpose, dedication and perseverance. • Thirdly, Edhi Foundation embodies the spirit of self-help, especially in a society where the notion of self-reliance has not taken root. • Fourthly, by focusing on alleviation of human sufferings, Edhi Foundation has broken the religious, geographical and racial barriers, thus fostering the notion of welfare for all mankind.
  7. 7. CHALLENGES Although the problems/challenges faced by such a supported organization are minor, yet every thing has its weaknesses. • Initially Edhi was subject to a lot of pressure from several quarters on initiating Jhoola service, and although gradually it caught on yet there are people who still consider the idea puerile. • There are only two blood banks, one at Karachi and the other at Mirpur, have no proper facilities for storing and screening blood.
  8. 8. CHALLENGES (cont.) • ambulance aircraft’s are yet to be established and this phenomenon is contributing enormously in slowing down the development process • Refugees Services are only available to a handful of countries, namely Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bahrain etc…
  9. 9. CHALLENGES (cont.) • Funding Societies are limited to a very small scale and the funding is unable to co-op with rate at which the foundation is developing. • the foundation needs strict rules that apply to the future heir of the foundation so that it is in safe hands
