HARNAI: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Dr. Sania Nishtar Saturday announced Rs 12,000 Ehsaas relief cash for all families of Harnai.

The SAPM visited earthquake hit areas of Harnaito assess the level of assistance needed from the federal government on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

She announced the federal government relief package for all families of Harnai, after the Prime Minister's approval.

Expressing solidarity with the victims, Dr. Sania said "Social protection is critical to earthquake induced recovery. The federal government will give Rs 12,000 cash subsistence to each family of Harnai as an immediate relief. The relief cash assistance will be mobilized under the Ehsaas programme. This relief assistance will be in addition to compensation being planned for affected households after detailed damage assessment."

In Harnai, Dr. Sania was joined by National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri, Balochistan Chief Secretary Mathar Niaz Rana, Managing Director of Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal Malik Zaheer Abbas Khokhar, Commissioner Sibbi Division, Deputy Commissioner Harnai and senior officers of Ehsaas and Pakistan Army.

Dr Sania expressed her grief over the human and property losses that she witnessed across the district and went to village Killi Shor and other areas of Tehsil Harnai to inquire after the affected families.

Sympathizing with the victims, Dr. Sania said "the federal government is with people of Harnai during these hard times, and we will do whatever we can to provide them immediate relief. We are fully committed to supporting the earthquake victims. Ehsaas' shock-responsive registry will also open its desks by Monday in the affected areas."

She also reviewed arrangements being made to open Ehsaas Registration Desks at the Irrigation Department of Harnai.

The Ehsaas National Socio-economic registry survey has been completed in Harnai. Registration desks will facilitate self-enrolment of missed households who need Ehsaas' assistance.

Earlier, Sania also visited District Hospital Harnai and met with those injured during the earthquake. Yesterday, she also went to Civil Hospital Quetta and CMH together with Governor Balochistan, Zahoor Agha to inquire the condition of victims being treated.

As per the PM's directives, two food trucks of 'Ehsaas Koye Bhooka Na Soye' have also been operationalised today in district Harnai to provide cooked meals to people. On Oct 7, 2021 a devastating earthquake hit different parts of Balochistan. Harnai is the most affected district, which is located east of the provincial capital Quetta.
