New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday welcomed Geeta, a differently abled girl who accidentally crossed over to Pakistan. He offered Rs 1 crore to Pakistan’s Edhi Foundation for taking care of Geeta, who remained stranded there for over a decade.

“I don’t think any amount of words are enough to thank the Edhi family for taking care of Geeta. They are apostles of kindness and compassion,” Modi tweeted.

“What the Edhi family has done is too priceless to be measured but I am happy to announce a contribution of Rs 1 crore to their foundation,” Modi said.

The Edhi Foundation is a non-profit social welfare programme in Pakistan, founded by Abdul Sattar Edhi in 1951. He is popularly known as Pakistan’s “Father Teresa”.

Separately, Modi welcomed Geeta on her return to India.

“It is truly wonderful to have you back home. Was truly a delight to spend time with you today,” he said.

He also expressed his gratitude to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his efforts that ensured Geeta’s return to India.
