Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar launched Zainab Alert, Response and Recovery mobile App (ZARRA) at an event in Islamabad today.
The ZARRA App can be used to report about missing and abducted children.
The App will allow users to upload a photo of the child with complete information about child's disappearance and alerting relevant departments for prompt action.
The App, which is connected with all the police stations in the country, will also allow users to track the progress on investigation process and update.
Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar expressed the confidence that the initiative will serve as an impregnable fortress to safeguard the children.
He said timely issuance of alerts pertaining to the missing and abducted children will undoubtedly facilitate the law enforcement agencies to swiftly recover these innocent souls.

Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar said we firmly believe that every child deserves a nurturing environment, access to quality education, healthcare and opportunity to explore to full potential.
He said the government remains steadfast in its dedication to upholding the UN convention on the rights of child.
Expressing his strong resentment on the senseless killing of children in Gaza, the Prime Minister said this appalling and atrocious child holocaust must stop immediately.
Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar stressed that unabated aggression should come to an end.
In his remarks, Minister for Human Rights, Khalil George said the children are the future and asset of Pakistan and it is our collective responsibility to work towards protection of their fundamental rights.
