Balochis­tan Governor Syed Zahoor Agha urged the Pakistan Baitul Mal (PBM) to launch drug rehab as part of a welfare program to help individuals overcome substance abuse and addiction.

On Thursday, the governor visited Baitul-Mal headquarters and discussed welfare schemes with PBM Managing Director, Malik Zaheer Abbas Khokhar.

The governor prasied PBM for its work and suggested initiatives to help a large number of poor people living in the remote areas of the province.

He assured PBM of full support from the provincial government for expanding its welfare programs for the poor.

The PBM managing director appreciated the governor’s idea of starting rehabilitation schemes for drug addicts in Balochistan and assured the latter that concrete steps would be taken to achieve this goal.

The governor also inaugurated PBM’s Panahgah App on the occasion.

The app will maintain a screen displaying the number of people benefitting from shelter homes as well as the number of meals being served there.

It will also facilitate beneficiaries to find out locations of Panahgahs and will allow donors to make online donations via the Panahgah App.

“Adopting such technological innovations will help us in improving our capabilities to serve the poor people in an efficient and transparent manner by having real time data,” the PBM chief said.
