“Visited a shelter home in #Islamabad. Admire the work of the staff, but sad to see so many ppl cannot afford meals. Shared potato-egg curry with some of the homeless & listened their moving stories. How can one support a family of 6-8 with 400rs income per-day?” he wrote on Twitter.


A number of such shelter homes are being established on the directive of the Prime Minister to provide a living place for homeless people.
