Some days back the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government planned to revamp 11 shelter homes in the various districts of the Northern province for providing better accommodation facilities for the less-privileged homeless people.
The decision was taken with the assistance from the Social Welfare and Special Education Department. Nearly 11 shelter homes presently exist in the KP province with 3 homes in Peshawar and 8 in the remaining parts of the districts.
Some pictures of 3 revamped shelter homes have surfaced on social media. As per sources, the shelter homes would be inaugurated after this month.

The shelter homes have been revamped and refurbished with all the latest facilities and provisions.
The KP government is presently engaged in gathering data of homeless people for proper identification to start working completely on the remaining shelter homes.
Earlier, the makeshift shelter homes were inaugurated in the provincial capital of Punjab by the name of “Panahgah” on the directions of the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
These shelter homes would be providing a comfortable place of residence for the homeless people to sleep and protect themselves from the severe chilly cold weather conditions during Winters in the country.
