The French group SOS Enfants en Detresses came up with the idea for World Day of War Orphans. The day brings attention to the lives of children who were hurt by the war and works to make their futures better.

What’s Important About World Day for War Orphans in 2022?

UNICEF says that about half of the people who died in wars in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries were civilians, and that number kept going up until 2001. Since that year, the number has dropped by 0.7% each year.

During World War II, civilians made up about two-thirds of the people who died. By the end of the 1980s, that number had risen to 90%.

Based on the facts above, it’s clear that civilians in several countries around the world have been hurt by war. The children are the ones who don’t speak up. Millions of children have grown up without families in places where there is war or ethnic conflict. The orphans have to take care of not only themselves, but also their younger siblings (if any).

So, the day brings attention to the situation of orphans and reminds us that every child needs to be cared for.
