Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday announced to start a project to provide food and shelter to homeless and needy people.
The PM said the initiative will particularly focus on people who are compelled to spend nights on the streets and footpaths under the open sky. He talked about the initiative during a meeting with a delegation of World Memon Organisation in Islamabad.
PM Khan stated that as per pre-election commitments and promises, the government is working on a new project aimed to facilitate the poor, needy and homeless people of Pakistan.
The government will first launch the pilot project in Lahore. Under the plan, five shelter homes will be built on state land. He further added those shelter homes would be a temporary-staying facility for the needy people and will also provide two-time meals. He also asked the World Memon Organisation to start a similar initiative in Karachi with the help of influential people. He said that the government would extend all possible assistance in this regard. PM Khan also lauded Memon community’s services in the social sector and for the progress of the country.
The delegation assured the PM of its full support, saying the Memon community will give full assistance to the government to help in the construction of five million low-cost housing units for the poor and underprivileged sections of the society.
Prime Minister approved the delegation’s request and asked them to present a proposal for the development of the incubation centres to encourage and boost IT sector in the country.
A few days ago, the government has also launched the landmark housing scheme Naya Pakistan to provide affordable houses to underprivileged people of the society. Under this project, five million houses are to be built across the country over the next five years.
