World Day of War Orphans

Each year on January 6th, the World Day of War Orphans is observed. This day was established by the French organization SOS Enfants en Detresses to shed light on the plight of children who lose their parents in conflict zones. Its primary goal is to emphasize the emotional, social, and physical challenges that these children encounter as they grow up.

The occasion serves as a compassionate acknowledgment of the innocent souls burdened by the aftermath of conflict, offering them hope and healing. It also serves as a poignant reminder that every child deserves care and support.

According to unicef.org, the global count of orphans exceeded 140 million, with 61 million in Asia, 52 million in Africa, 10 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, and 7.3 million in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
