Bilquis Edhi Declared ‘Person of The Decade’ by Impact Hallmarks

Together with UN human rights rapporteur Prof Yanghee Lee and US ethicist Stephen Soldz, Pakistan’s towering philanthropist and humanitarian Bilquis Edhi was declared the “Person of the Decade.”

A spokesperson for the Edhi Foundation told APP that Bilquis Edhi was declared the most impactful individual of the first two decades of the 21st century according to the domino effect verdict, announced on Friday by the Impact Hallmarks.

Bilquis Bano Edhi is a trained nurse and heads the Base of Bilquis Edhi. She has spent over six decades of her life helping those in need. So far, her charity has rescued over 42,000 abandoned babies by putting “jhoolas”[cradles] at the national Edhi Homes and centers.

Bilquis Edhi, recognized as the Mother of Pakistan, has already won numerous national and international awards, including Hilal-e-Imtiaz, the Lenin Peace Prize, the Mother Teresa Memorial International Social Justice Award (2015), and the Ramon Magsaysay Public Service Award, which she received in 1986 with her husband Abdul Sattar Edhi.

The three research results shortlisted by the Impact Hallmarks were: the first ever scientific demonstration of Magneto-Hydro-Tropism (MHT), its Terato-kinetics IRT Model, and the first methodological baselines of the annotation-broadsheet with relation to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak rendered accessible to the World Health Organization on March 3, 2020 and others concerned for academic considerations.

“Ten extravagantly towering silhouettes have pixelated the rock-solid images and inimitable descriptions on the large canvas of the first two decades of the 21st century,” according to the organization’s announcement.

“They stood out… by virtue of the impact of the first bi-decadal course of the new century and the new millennium on munificent realms and bounteous views.”

The verdict announcement called seven other people “true patrons of change, the flag-bearers of justice and the domino effect architects of the Top-10 of the decade’s impact hierarchy” in addition to the three top ‘Persons of the Decade’.
