How the public can protect children orphaned by Covid
Reports show that many children have lost their parents due to Covid, Where Are India’s Children, a child welfare NGO, has issued advice about how to protect children who are orphaned or abandoned due to Covid.
Concerned citizens can:-
- Immediately contact Childline on 1098 if they become aware of a child in danger or who has become orphaned.
- Or, take the child to the nearest Specialised Adoption Agency, which can be found by selecting your State at http://cara.nic.in/Stakeholders/India_map.html
- Do not give a child to any other NGO or person claiming they can find them an adoptive parent.
- Prospective adoptive parents can find out how to register for adoption at www.cara.nic.in. Do not attempt to take any other route to adopt a child, it is illegal.
