Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan on Wednesday raised concerns over the children who have lost their parents due to the deadly virus. She highlighted the plight of children impacted by the pandemic. Bebo urged people to call the childline for information or query of such children.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, she captioned the video, “So upsetting that the children in our country have to go through something so brutal to get their basic needs fulfilled. Please do not share information about children on social media. Instead, directly call the childline, 1098, for any information or query.”
The stated video was originally shared by Brut India and talked about children who have lost their parent or a parents due COVID infection. The clip explained ways to support and help these children. The right way for adoption and other details were also shared in the video.
“The Children In Danger During Covid Scores of Indian children are going hungry or being pushed into hard labour during the Covid-19 pandemic, warn people working on the ground. And no, sharing that viral social media message about children up for adoption won’t help them…” read the caption.
