Moreover, the shelter home has three halls (one each for male, females, and transgenders), two dining halls, two prayer halls, 18 washrooms (11 for males and 7 for females), a kitchen/storeroom for food, manager office, security offices for male and females.
Earlier to this, PM Khan had inaugurated Lahore’s panahgah for the people of Lahore. It’s a very good initiative to provide facilities to the needy people. Furthermore, the government also aims to set up more panahgahs in other cities as well.
Well, it’s the duty of the government to provide shelter to homeless people. This is a primary need for living. Plenty of people in our country spend their nights out on the street. So, with the help of this initiative, lots of people will get the facility of home.
