World Orphans Day is a global event to raise awareness and funding for the millions of children displaced by AIDS and poverty. Second Monday of November…..Tragically, millions of children all over the globe have become orphaned for many reasons: war, famine, displacement, disease or poverty.
To make sure that they are not forgotten, once a year there is a special day dedicated just to them: World Orphans Day, which falls on the second Monday of each November.
This special day has been put in place in order to draw attention to the plight of the world’s orphans, and so on this day people are encouraged to actively participate to help raise awareness, support and funding for motherless and fatherless children worldwide. A noble cause if there ever was one!
