Helplines numbers are not just meant to be reading material when you are travelling by public transport.
Something that you just read over when bored and with nothing and nowhere to go.
Instead they are very important to us as the right one can be extremely useful if one of us got into a tough situation.
However, a lot of people are still, barring a few, unaware of these important govt. helpline numbers.
