SocialFirst old age home to be established in Islamabad soon

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: National Council of Social Welfare (NCSW) would establish first shelter home for elderly persons in the Federal Capital soon with an accommodation capacity of 40 persons.

Chairperson NCSW Dr Nadeem Shafiq Malik told the state-run news agency that they would establish the old age home both for male and female inmates with the collaboration of a Non-Government Organization (NGO) Nijjat Trust which is already running two shelter homes in Rawalpindi.

It is unfortunate that such practices are emerging in our society as it is against our traditions, he said adding that they have taken the decision after receiving number of complains from such people.

Homeless elderly people cannot fulfil their needs themselves and facing countless problems including major issue of survival without shelter.

The chairperson informed that the council will provide accommodation and bear the utility expenses while the rest of the facilities would be ensured by their partner NGO.

He stated that they have started working on the project which will be functional soon after completing all the formalities.
