Earlier, the first lady had visited the site of shelter home project in Lahore on December 1 last year.
The wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan had directed to complete the work at the shelter home as soon as possible, adding that all basic facilities including a proper meal should be provided to the homeless.
In November, Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation of the shelter home project in Lahore.
The project is aimed at housing homeless people who usually spend nights on footpaths or other places in different areas of Lahore city.
The PM, during the ceremony of inaugurating shelter homes, had said that his party’s aim was to turn Pakistan into a welfare state and the target could not be achieved without helping the poor segments of the society.
“Should we allow our people to live on footpaths. Our government is bringing a first of its kind poverty alleviation package within a week or two in which all relevant departments will work under a single setup to eliminate poverty,” Imran Khan had said. The PM had said that his government will initiate similar projects in other big cities of the country.
