Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar made an announcement on Monday, reintroducing the Zainab Alert, Response, and Recovery App (ZARRA). Launched in 2020, the Zainab Alert app resurfaces, offering citizens a vital tool to report missing children promptly. The reintroduction happened during an event commemorating Universal Children’s Day, highlighting the government’s commitment to safeguarding the rights and well-being of children.
Zainab Alert App to Empower Citizens to Safeguard Children
The Zainab Alert app serves as an important platform for reporting cases of missing and abducted children. Users can upload a photo of the missing child, provide details about the disappearance, and share the alert with others. The app, integrated with all police stations nationwide, facilitates monitoring of the investigation’s progress and provides real-time updates on the status of the missing child.
Prime Minister Kakar, during the event, reiterated the government’s commitment to comprehensive development, education, healthcare, participation, dignity, and security for all children. Aligning with the principles of the “UN Convention on the Rights of the Child,” this commitment reflects a broader dedication to ensuring a secure and prosperous future for the nation.
Collaborative Initiative and Acknowledgments
Prime Minister Kakar emphasized its status as a joint initiative involving all stakeholders, acknowledging the collaborative efforts of the National Commission on the Rights for Children (NCRC) and the Ministry of Human Rights in launching the app. He underscored the collective responsibility of both government and non-governmental organizations and society at large in protecting children’s rights. The alert app, integral to ensuring the safety of children, is readily available on the Google Play Store. With this reintroduction, the government aims to reinforce citizen participation in upholding the well-being and security of the nation’s most valuable asset—its children.
