Mothers return to Edhi for Children

Three mothers, who handed over their eight children to Edhi on Tuesday, came back to take their children home on Wednesday. Unable to face the onslaught of growing poverty, three families of the city’s lower-middle class locality Korangi handed over their eight children to Abdus Sattar Edhi on Tuesday in the hope that their children may get food and schooling.
Three mothers came to Bilquees Edhi and started crying after seeing their children there. Speaking to media, they said that abject poverty forced them to hand over their children to Edhi. The children include Omar, Usman, Nimra, Adnan, Faiza, Rehima, Rimsha and Warda, aged between 8 and 10 years.
