Edhi declines PM Modi’s donation

Sharing is Caring

New Delhi/ Pakistan, Oct 28 (ANI): Pakistani charity Edhi Foundation, who took care of Indian girl Geeta, has confirmed that it declined Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s donation offer of 10 million rupees. The donation was offered in recompense for 13 years of caring for a lost deaf-mute Indian girl Geeta whose quest to return home captivated the subcontinent. Geeta flew to India on Monday (October 26), after identifying photographs of a family based in the Bihar as being hers. She was greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who also thanked the Edhi Foundation. “What the Edhi family has done is too priceless to be measured but I am happy to announce a contribution of one crore rupees to their foundation,” Modi said in a tweet. But the charity has politely declined the cash. However, spokesperson of India’s foreign ministry, Vikas Swarup, rejected the claim. Geeta is staying in an institution, pending her DNA test, after she could not recognize her family.
