World Orphans Day Origin

World Orphans Day is an annual worldwide commemoration that facilitates the public awareness on the unfortunate condition of orphans and displaced children even in the developing countries. It is always surprising to find out that this is the reality that we are facing nowadays.

These homeless children’s rampant growth escalates so fast every year.  Apparently, they badly need to be rescued from their disheartened situation that they don’t deserve to experience at a very young age.

Children who had lost their parents who are supposed to be their first line of defence and refuge, lacks guidance and security which cause them to become more susceptible and acquire a higher chance to be exposed with domestic violence, abuse, malnutrition, exploitation and mistreatment.

Consequently, World Orphans Day is initiated by The Stars Foundation, for these reasons. This observance encourages every individual to partake and participate to create an innocuous, nonviolent, and more protected atmosphere and surroundings for these children.

There may be no factual details of its origin, but seeing these issues will be enough for us to be aware of this observance, and take it seriously.
