New helpline for elderly & disabled people started in Chhatisgarh
The social welfare department of the Chhattisgarh government has started a toll-free helpline 104 people with disabilities and the elderly.
The toll-free number has been launched as there is no dedicated wing that works towards their needs. As a result these groups are neglected.
Disabled people in Kabirdham district have already started using the toll-free helpline. The feedback has been positive.
The helpline which was launched by the chief minister also provides health advice. People abandoned by their families can also call on this number for assistance. People will be given information about different government schemes.
