Geeta Pandey - BBC News

"The sudden imposition of a 21-day lockdown in India to stop the spread of the coronavirus has thrown the lives of millions of children into chaos," says this article from BBC News. Some of the worst affected, according to Sanjay Gupta, director of Chetna, a Delhi-based charity that works with child laborers and street children, are children who are homeless and living on the streets. "During the lockdown everyone has been told to stay home. But what about the street children? Where do they go?" he asks.

Furthermore, there has been a massive spike in daily calls to a 24-hour emergency phone helpline for children provided by the Indian government.
