The city of Hyderabad at the moment is in one of its darkest phases while battling the pandemic. Things that the people and the government never expected are happening.
During this time, families have lost their loved ones. Children have either lost their father or their mother or even lost both their parents to the pandemic. The times are very hard for those who are losing their loved ones and are trying to move on in life. A helping hand during a time as such can make an impact in a grieving person's life. He/she might still feel the pain of losing a parent but will find the courage to live.
Kavitha Rao, a party worker for the TRS and a member legislative council, has been promoting a brilliant initiative by the government on Twitter. A childline for all those kids who have lost their parents or taking care of a covid positive parent can contact this number in case of any emergency or issues. 1098 is the number that is dedicated to children needing any assistance across the country. But keeping in mind the pandemic and its effects on the lives of children who are turning orphans, the state government has dedicated this number to assist kids in need of covid care. Also, kids seeking covid care at orphanages can contact this number.
