The World Day of War Orphans, held on 6 January each year, remembers all orphaned children.

This special day draws attention to the condition of orphans* in the world.

  • The reasons include war, famine, disease, poverty and more.
  • On this day, people are encouraged to raise awareness, support and funds for orphans.


  • The World Day of War Orphans was created by The Stars Foundation.
  • The Foundation aims to raise awareness about orphans in the world.
