Burial services were initiated in 1990 by Abdul Sattar Edhi International Foundation located in New York, USA. In the first phase of its services, foundation purchased a piece of land for graveyard – the space nearly for 400 graves. That graveyard filled by burying down the coffins of Pakistanis including Muslims from different countries.
In this series, another graveyard that could accommodate 300 graves was purchased in 2004 for the community, and the same appears to be filling soon. The outlay of burial are borne by the family of the deceased, in case of any deserving case – who can’t afford the expenses of burial – are being paid by the Foundation itself.
However, the shrouding and exclusive bathing to the coffins are given by the Foundation without charging any cost. When the graveyard will fill all its graves, another graveyard would be bought, with the permission of Abdul Sattar Edhi – as already he has given the same.
