First government-run adoption centre in Bangla launched
The Bangla Government has launched a government-run adoption centre at Medinipur. It will come up at Vidyasagar Balika Bhawan (girls’ home) in the district. The centre was officially inaugurated by the Minister for Women & Child Development and Social Welfare.
There are a total of 22 adoption centres spread across Bangla, most of which are run by voluntary organizations, and are aided by the State Government. The Minister for Women & Child Development and Social Welfare has confirmed that starting with Medinipur, five more adoption centres of the same kind will be set up in other places.
Ten children can now be housed at this adoption centre. Children up to the age of six can reside here. They will also receive education here.
