Protection for orphans
SAHIRA WAHID The health, welfare and dignity of unattended orphans are found in abysmal condition in Pakistan. Recently, a bill providing for welfare, safety, protection and rehabilitation of orphans was presented in Senate.
The bill is aimed at binding the state to provide all the necessities like education, healthcare, protection to the orphans. The bill also provides for establishing a Fund for orphans with an initial grant of Rs 50 million. The efforts are welcome and need to be be quickly implemented. —Turbat, Balcohistan
