Thirteen-year-old Dharmander Kumar ran away from his home in Bihar and arrived at the Thiruvananthapuram Central railway station at Thampanoor here on November 24 seeking, as he said, some sort of labour. He fell ill and had no familiar face to turn to. But fortunately for the boy, he was cared for by the Thiruvananthapuram unit of Childline, national round-the-clock free emergency telephone helpline.

Dharmander’s medical expenses were borne by the government, under the Thalolam scheme. This programme was introduced by the Health Department a couple of years ago to offer medical treatment to children from poor families.

Now Dharmendra is staying in Kerala with a friend witing for his son’s recovery .
