Pro­tec­tion for or­phans

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

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
