Capital gets two more shelter homes


The Islamabad Capital Territory Administration (ICTA) has established two more shelter homes (Panaah Gah) one at Bharakahu and the other in the area of Tarnol for the homeless and needy people.
The decision was taken owing to rising number of homeless people and cold wave across the city, Deputy Commissioner, Islamabad, Hamza Sahfqaat told APP on Monday.
“All the basic and necessary arrangements are being ensured like bedding, quilts, heater, water and meal to the visitors at the shelter homes,” he added.
The each ‘Panaah Gah’ presently set up on tents would provide accommodation to approximately 60 persons, he said, adding the new set up would be shifted to fabricated material structure in three to four days.—APP
