PM Imran Khan visits shelter homes in Islamabad handed over to Bait ul Maal

Currently, shelter homes in Islamabad are being remodeled while Rawalpindi shelters will be next

Prime Minister Imran Khan handed over the administration of five shelter homes in the federal capital to the Pakistan Bait ul Maal (PBM) with instructions to renovate them within a few months. In the second phase of the project, the uplifting of shelter homes in Rawalpindi will take place. As per some reports, the administration of the shelter homes has been given to PBM since Islamabad’s city administration is getting no funds allocated to it.

“The control of Panahgahs in Islamabad has been handed over from Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT administration to the PBM in order to make them sustainable ventures because the local administration was facing problems in running them,” according to a district administration official.

The PM said that we must treat everyone with dignity during his visit to one of the shelter homes based in the Tarlai area. “The poor don’t have a voice and they will never object. This is our duty to serve them with quality and dignity.” “In the first phase, Panahgahs in Islamabad should be remodeled and these centers in the country should be revamped in the second phase,” the prime minister added.

Benefitting from the technology

Special Assistant on Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety to the Prime Minister, Dr Sania Nishtar, briefed about the improved administrative structure and service standards at Panagah. “Thank you, prime minister for entrusting Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Division with a mandate to enhance the quality and scale of Panagahs,” she said.

“Leveraging on IT capabilities, the living standards have been restructured with enhanced infrastructure for food catering and living, security protocols, standardized capacity, organized HR, eligibility criteria, effective monitoring, regulated donations, and financial details,” Nishtar added.

Helping those in need

There are millions of homeless people in Pakistan and these shelter homes are important for them to lead a normal life. Typically, it is the laborers who cannot afford a place due to low income and high rental costs. Steps such as these must be appreciated and more similar programs must be undertaken to improve the quality of life for the masses.
