So what is our duty….
Our duty is to make sure that next time when we will cross by those children’s who are living on the streets or displaced from families, children’s those are under abuse, exploitation, trafficking, children’s those are forced to be in child marriage, or living in emotional stress, disabilities, challenges, just take a small afford and call to 1098. And let them know; don’t just run always from the truth. Because our society believes that we cannot make a positive difference in this situations, but, at least, they can.
CHILDLINE will provide shelter for those Childs. They will give medical care to them, they will rescue them from their miserable conditions, and they will give them emotional support because we are emotionless now a day.
