Fake News two girls who have recently lost their parents can be adopted by calling a number. 

A post is being shared with a claim that two girls who have recently lost their parents can be adopted by calling a number. 

This claim is Fake. A process has to be followed to adopt a child. It is illegal to adopt a child if proper guidelines are not followed.

Earlier this week, DCPCR appealed to people on social media to call on their helpline number and report cases where children need essential supplies, have lost their parent(s), or are struggling to support themselves due to the illness.

Flooded by requests for adopting children who lost their parents to Covid-19, both online and offline, the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) has urged people not to fall for misinformation floating on social media, and advised interested families to follow the due legal process to initiate the adoption process.

Several children have lost their parents to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic — fourth wave, as per the Delhi government — in the national capital. Earlier this week, DCPCR appealed to people on social media to call on their helpline number and report cases where children need essential supplies, have lost their parent(s), or are struggling to support themselves due to the illness. Following this, the child rights body said requests for adopting children orphaned amid the pandemic have also started pouring in.

Commission chairperson Anurag Kundu tweeted on Saturday evening: “Do not believe anyone who says he/she can give you the child for adoption. They are either lying or misleading or simply involved in illegal practices. Do reach out to your lawyer friends for advice.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has manifested itself as multiple crises in one, some visible, some non-visible. The death numbers and the rising cases can obscure some of pandemic’s collateral damagesIn this particular, the thousands of children who have lost their parents to the fatal virus.

A UNICEF report in March projects that when audited, India will have the highest number of COVID-19 related deaths among children under five, and the highest number of maternal deaths in South Asia in 2020; 29,0000 such mortalities have already occurred in the region.

Thousands of children are left orphaned in the course of the pandemic, a part of the broader grief leaving a lasting toll on the society.
