LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that efforts of Child Protection & Welfare Bureau (CPWB) for destitute children are praiseworthy and the provincial government will extend complete support to it.

Such children will be fully taken care of and education and training will be provided to them to make them a useful citizen of the society, he added.

The chief minister directed the chairperson to visit different districts to run an awareness campaign about the steps taken for the welfare of the hapless children. Adoption of different steps for securing the bright future of the deprived children is a priority agenda of the Punjab government and all resources are being utilised in this regard, he maintained.

Usman Buzdar said that the CPWB will be made an effective institution for providing a better future to the abandoned children. The PTI government is striving hard for the betterment and growth of abandoned children through education and training and the bureau is working marvellously under Sara Ahmad, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Sara Ahmad said that every effort will be made to make CPWB as the best institution and she will work with commitment and zeal to fulfill the responsibility of rehabilitation of abandoned children.
