“No one should be deprived of the basic human right to shelter,” said the Chief Minister. “The ‘Apna Chhat Apna Ghar’ project is a reflection of our government’s determination to create an inclusive and compassionate society, where every individual has access to a safe and secure living environment.”

Under the project, the provincial government plans to establish a network of shelters across major cities and towns in Punjab. These facilities will provide temporary accommodation, essential amenities, and support services to individuals and families facing homelessness due to various circumstances, including natural disasters, economic hardships, or displacement.

“This is not just a project; it is a humanitarian endeavor that reflects our commitment to upholding the dignity and well-being of every citizen,” added Maryam Nawaz. “By providing shelter and support to those in need, we are laying the foundation for a more equitable and compassionate society.”

The ‘Apna Chhat Apna Ghar’ project has been widely praised by human rights activists, social welfare organizations, and the general public as a much-needed initiative to address the pressing issue of homelessness in Punjab. As the project kicks off, the provincial government remains determined to ensure its effective implementation and continuous monitoring, working towards a future where no one is left without a roof over their head.
