    Message in English:
    I am participating in the Safe Surrender campaign to spread awareness about how to safely and legally surrender a child in India. When a child is unwanted in a family, or a parent or guardian does not have the capacity to raise a child, the child should not be abandoned or given in illegal adoption. Every parent in India has the right to surrender the child, so please safely surrender the child at a legal adoption agency. There are more than 350 specialised adoption agencies in India. Go to waic.in/ss to learn how to find a specialised adoption agency closest to you.
    Message in Hindi:
    मैं सेफ़ सरेंडर विडीओ कैम्पेन में हिस्सा ले रही हूँ ताकि लोगों को पता चले कि भारत में सुरक्षित और कानूनी तरीक़े से कैसे एक बच्चे का समर्पण किया जा सकता है।अगर किसी परिवार में कोई बच्चा अवांछित है या माता-पिता में बच्चे को पालने की क्षमता नहीं है, तो बच्चे को कहीं फेंकना नहीं चाहिए, या ग़ैरक़ानूनी तरीक़े से किसी को देना नहीं चाहिए। माता-पिता या अभिभावक उस बच्चे को क़ानूनी तरीक़े से एक स्पेशलायज़्ड अडॉप्शन एजेन्सी में समर्पित कर सकते हैं। भारत में हर माता-पिता को यह अधिकार है, आपके ऊपर कुछ प्रॉब्लम नहीं आएगी। तो प्लीज़ बच्चे को सुरक्षित रखें और उसे क़ानूनी अडॉप्शन एजेन्सी में ही समर्पित करें। भारत में 350 से अधिक ऐसी एजेंसियां हैं। आप waic.in/ss पर जाएँ और आपके पास की एजेन्सी का नाम, पता, और फ़ोन नम्बर जानें।
  3. Share the video on your social media channels and with your network of family, friends, and colleagues.
    Please add these hashtags when you share on social media so we can find and re-share your video! #SafeSurrender #WAIC #CARA #SpecialisedAdoptionAgencies #WCD #ProtectTheChildren #Home4EveryChild
