Islamabad to get two temporary shelter homes


ISLAMABAD: In line with the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the district administration of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) has decided two spots for set up of temporary shelter homes for homeless and passenger people.

According to the ICT admin spokesman, two shelter homes will be constructed including I-11/4 and rural area of Tarlai as both places were busy for business activities and people mostly working in those areas have daily wage and very low income.

In I-11/4, it will be set up on two kanal for homeless, especially for those working in fruit and vegetable market as well as for those working at Pir Wadhai bus stand who rely on low income, while the second one will set up in the rural area of Tarlai.

Prime Minister is expected to inaugurate these shelter homes that would be constructed with pre-fabricated material in the two upcoming weeks.

ICT chief commissioner in its initial survey has determined these places to set up temporary shelter homes targeting people having very low income working in those areas.

Meanwhile, Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad has also decided to reopen the temporary shelter home located in Sector G-7 for needy people.
