That is why the Ehsas Kifalat program was launched by Prime Minister Imran Khan and has benefited millions of people. More shelter homes are being set up in the country in this regard. Home in shelters is opened on the orders of the Prime Minister. Two years ago, this decision was accepted. RDA shelter’s had a lot of individuals here, including staff who get good food and respect here. They will open more shelters in the region. The standard of shelter homes will be increased and its reach has been extended by the sponsorship programme. Under this survey who is eligible is decided after a variety of scrutiny. Every effort is made to make Ehsaas Income, Ehsaas Education and other programs non-political and are intended to help the people in the pandemic. Chairman Tariq Mehmood Murtaza of the RDA thanked Federal Minister Dr Sania Nishtar on the occasion.
