My sincere apologies to CHILDLINE India Foundation

Friday, June 6, 2008

I had noted in my earlier post that, 1098 (child helpline) can be used to pass on the excess food left over after a party/function. Unfortunately that is not true. My mistake, of course, was unintentional and was completely based on an email forwarded by one of my (trusted) friend. I thank CHILDLINE India Foundation for commenting on the post and clarifying the matter.

This is what happens when you trust a forwarded mail from a trusted friend. :)

My sincere appologies to CHILDLINE India Foundation.

Here is the text of the comment, that should clarify everything.
CHILDLINE India DOES NOT COLLECT left over food after a party.

CHILDLINE 1098 is India's only and most widespread Children's phone emergency outreach service for distressed and deprived children in need of care and protection. We not only respond to emergency needs of children but also provide a platform for networking amongst organisations and provide linkages to support systems that facilitate the rehabilitation of children in need. This is a project supported by the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development and linking state Governments, NGOs, bilateral /multilateral agencies and corporate sector. In 12 years, CHILDLINE has worked with over 3 million children in need of care and protection.

1098, the toll free emergency number should be kept free for emergency calls from children and others in the time of distress or for concerned citizens to report a child who is in need of our help.
