The government of Pakistan shifts Syrian refugee family to a temporary shelter home in Islamabad on Wednesday.

Sharing the pictures, Khan had assured that the government will support them. “Met this Syrian refugee Samir Faris & his family a wife, 4 daughters & a son in F6 Islamabad & assured them that under @ImranKhanPTI Gov. We would take care of them. Have talked with @AonAbbasPTI for living&food in Panagah & Sec Human Rights for permanent solution of their issue,” wrote Khan on Twitter.
The pictures show the man was holding a board with a message for people to help them and his family who fled Syria due to war.
The same day Pakistan Bait-ul Maal shifted the Syrian refugee family to shelter homes. Through its official Twitter account, Pakistan Bait-ul-Maal updated people regarding the progress on the case. In one of the tweets, they shared pictures of reaching out to the family and taking them to the shelter home in the car.
The government of Pakistan received massive appreciation on social media for reaching out and helping the family of Syrian refugees. They asked the government to make further arrangements for the family to facilitate them, for instance, provide them with a separate residence and employment soon.
The incident also highlighted how Pakistan has been welcoming refugees from several countries. Social media users asserted that several refugee communities like Afghanis, Uyghur Muslims, Kurds, Rohingya Muslims and Syrians have been settled here for decades.
International organizations like the United Nations have praised Pakistan time and again for their role in welcoming refugees despite the economic crunch.
