PLEASE DONT BREAK THIS CHAIN, Helping hands are better than Praying Lips"Copy n paste takes only few seconds...

Analysis by Merofact Awareness Team: 

Thogh 1098 toll free number exist to help child, but not for collecting foods. Please open Childline India Foundation website at There is a proper disclaimer sayingWarning : We understand there is a chain mail circulating that says - one should call up 1098 to pick up left over food after a party etc so that it is not wasted. This is not true. We are India 's only and most widespread Children's phone emergency outreach service (1098) for children in need of care and protection. We do not pick up food or distribute food. This mail was not initiated by us, kindly do not circulate it. Your cooperation is appreciated." 
The above message is self explanatory. Telegraph India made a news on that also, as early as Jan, 2012.
