Railway Child Help Desk
ATMA Foundation, in collaboration with Childline, is implementing the Railway Child Help Desk (CHDK) Project at Thrissur Railway Station – a joint project of the Ministry of Women & Child Development and Ministry of Railways.
The CHDK will help in providing immediate attention and care to children at railway stations who are found unaccompanied by any adults – addressing issues like the runaway, missing or abandoned children, child trafficking, etc.
Assistance to children includes protection of children from exploitative situations, production before Child Welfare Committee and restoration efforts and linkages to long rehabilitative services.
The 12- member ATMA CHDK team has started functioning, and services will be available 24/7.
