Karachi: According to recent news reported on Sunday, the federal government has identified 5 new places in Karachi to set up as many Panahgahs, where the underprivileged and needy individuals from poor sections of society will be provided free food and shelter, in a first such move for the metropolis after more than 100 such hubs have already been established in different parts of the country. All this being a part of Prime Minister Khan’s initiative.
According to officials, one of the five Panahgahs had already started functioning in Surjani Town without much media display and formal inauguration while four more centres would be established in different areas.
PM Khan had last year appointed Mr. Naseem-ur-Rehman, who is an international professional with specialization in development and humanitarian issues. He brings a wealth of leadership skills and management capability to the position. As chief executive officer of the Imran Khan Foundation (IKF), he has played a pivotal role in strengthening its organizational transformation.
He said the basic concept behind setting up Panahgahs was to support the poor and labour class of the society, which remained shelter-less in urban areas while earning bread for their families mostly living in the rural parts of the country.
He said the Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal was providing organizational support and in Karachi, the federally administered body was also actively engaged in making the centres operational at the earliest.
