The CHILDLINE 1098 service has been growing leaps and bounds over the years with presence in 291 cities across India. Reaching out to millions of children in every town, district and city thus becomes a daunting task as we grow further. Enabling us to perform our tasks of rescue and rehabilitation are the CHILDLINE rescue vans which help us to get to a child in time. Recently 2 such rescue vans were launched in Srikakulam and Nagaon.


On 26th Jaunary, 2015 during the Republic Day Parade organized by the District Administration, a CHILDLINE rescue van was inaugurated by Dr. P. Lakshminarasimha, IAS, District Collector in the presence of Sri Vivek Yadav, IAS, Joint Collector, Sri A.S.Khan, IPS, Suptd. Of Police, Sri P. Rajini Kantha Rao, Addl. Joint Collector, Srikakulam. To commemorate this special day, a CHILDLINE stall was also placed to spread information about 1098 to the general public. Around 10,000 people including children from various schools were present for this event and received valuable information regarding CHILDLINE. The inauguration of the rescue was celebrated by flying balloons and organizing a rally through much fanfare. The District Collector and other dignitaries visited the CHILDLINE stall and interacted with the team. All the District Officers of line departments assured their best support to CHILDLINE and congratulated the team on introducing the rescue van which will assist in creating a safe environment for children.
