"Amruta Kale pledge to Supports CHILDLINE 1098"
Childline India Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of millions across the globe. The effects of the crisis have been felt deeply, especially by vulnerable groups living on the fringes. Caught amidst the socio-economic fallout of the disease and the all-pervasive sense of uncertainty and anxiety, children face heightened threats to their safety and well-being.

All through the COVID-19 crisis and the lockdown in India, CHILDLINE 1098, the emergency helpline for children in need of care and protection, has continued to receive calls 24x7 without any disruption to take up interventions to prevent abuse, assist children in distress and provide emotional support.

In the past two months alone, CHILDLINE has answered over 10 lakh calls, and carried out over 50,000 interventions, where frontline workers have reached the location of a child to provide assistance to or rescue a child from distress. 


CHILDLINE has also been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response, and has been working closely with district administrations, child protection bodies, health departments, law enforcement, and civil society networks to disseminate information about COVID-19, distribute hygiene kits, food and medical supplies, and extend emergency relief and rescue for children and families affected by the crisis. 


CHILDLINE needs our support to keep the 1098 emergency helpline operational and ensure that teams have the resources to reach every child in distress. Funds that we raise will go towards meeting the following expenses.

- Program expenses for keeping the CHILDLINE Contact Centres operational 24x7

- Personal Protection Equipment (masks, gloves, etc) for CHILDLINE personnel

- Creating awareness on issues of child protection

- Capacity building of CHILDLINE personnel

- Providing emergency relief and support to migrants and other vulnerable groups
