World Day Of War Orphans 2023: Around millions of children are orphaned due to war and are subjected to a life of hardship, and emotional and physical neglect. The day was created by a French organization, to raise awareness about the sufferings of the war orphans.
ORPHANS IS defined by UNICEF as a child under 18 years of age who has lost one or both parents to any cause of death and is considered an Orphan. World Day of War Orphans is observed on January 06 every year to raise awareness and highlight the social, economic, mental and personal issues that these orphan children face at an early age in life.
The day urges us to understand our responsibility to take care of these children and their well-being. Its main objective is to develop reforms and facilities to provide a better quality of life to war orphans. The UNICEF statistics state that there are around 140 million orphans in the world including 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. The theme for World Day of War Orphans 2023 revolves around “Standing Up for War-Affected Children.”
