There are still billions of orphans in the world.  Why is our society like this? Parental separation, poverty, malnutrition, and disease make children orphans. World Orphans is one of the stigmatized days of modern society. Because every day in the world some children become orphans due to family reasons.

Philosopher Plato once said, ‘A man should never leave a child as an orphan. Rather, he should be accompanied forever to overcome his loneliness. People become criminals when they are alone.  So, a man should not let anyone become an orphan.

Orphanages in this world can be found before 400 BC. Every year the second week of November is observed as World Orphans Day. This day is celebrated to raise awareness among people about this issue.

Orphans are one of the most vulnerable communities in the world. We all know how difficult it is to live without parents. Elsewhere are constantly deprived in their lives. They are deprived of their fundamental rights. World Orphans Day is mainly observed to remember them. And to create awareness among people. So that no child has to go through life as an orphan.

History of World Orphans Day

Orphanages in this world can be found before 400 BC. The main purpose of observing World Orphans Day is to ensure food shelter good health and care for orphan children. And to make them overcome the human suffering they suffer from not having parents.

World Orphans Day was first observed by the Romans. The issue of looking after orphans has been going on for a long time. The Greek legal system mandates that all orphans under the age of 18 receive financial support for their care. Shelters were also arranged for orphans from various churches.

 By the 1990s, life for orphans had become difficult. Orphaned children were not getting the necessary nutritional food and medical care education support. The survival of the orphan children of England became a liability. Since then, western countries have started adopting orphans legally. The Orphan Adoption System is introduced to ensure their happiness, beautiful future, education, and health. Then in 2006 Stars Foundation arranged an Entertainment Organization Fund for those displaced by poverty, war, AIDS, and natural disasters — observed the first World Orphans Day.

World Orphans Day mainly observed to raise public awareness so that orphans are not looked down upon. Orphans in our society are constantly neglected in various ways. So, on this day, people are encouraged to take care of orphans, love them and respect them. All people should donate whatever they can to orphans so that they can have a healthy and beautiful life. And they should also be assured of a good education. So, we all should celebrate this World Orphans Day.

Why We Should Celebrate Orphans Day

The main purpose of observing World Orphans Day is to encourage people to stand by the orphans. Parents are the best support in our life. When a child has no parents, he is deprived of all the success in the world. They have to constantly hear from people that they are an orphan.  Orphans have to live a very difficult life.

  In our society, there are lower-class people as well as upper class people. If the upper-class people of society come to the side of the orphans and help them to live the good life, then the suffering of the orphans will be reduced to some extent. Many upper-class people in society donate a portion of their income to various charities for charity.

 Orphaned children who live on the streets have a very difficult life. They have to engage in livelihood work before reaching adulthood to survive. By this, they are deprived of the light of education. Education expansion does not happen in their life. Because they have no one to look after them. They have no one to pay for their education.

So if the upper-class people of society all donate some money for orphans then it is possible to provide accommodation for many more orphans and provide education. So World Orphans day is observed every year to encourage people to donate to orphans.

Ways of Reduce Orphans Rate in your society

As orphans, we know those whose parents are dead are called orphans.  But there are many orphan children in society whose parents have abandoned them.  All these children are orphans even though their parents are alive.

The parents of these children abandon them for one reason or another.  Some due to lack of finances, some due to fear of not being able to provide a birth certificate, due to the divorce of husband and wife.

 The number of orphaned children is increasing these days due to various complications regarding parents.  A child’s life is becoming miserable due to some mistake made by the parents. 

By this, the child is hindered in his proper development, deprived of education and good life.  As conscious citizens, we should raise the awareness of people in our society on these issues.  So that no child has to spend his life in an orphanage. Here are some steps to reduce the number of orphan’s rate in our society.

  1. Family Planning

The move is quite important to reduce the number of orphaned children.  Both educated and uneducated families live in our society.  In many families, parents have no idea about family planning.  They are not aware of the birth control process. Make people aware in World Orphans Day.

  Due to this the number of children in their family increases.  As the number of members of the lower-class family increases, the scarcity also increases.  Many parents drop their children in orphanages.  So, we should make people aware of family planning in society.

  • Marriage Counselors

The number of divorces is increasing day by day in our society.  Husband and wife quarrel with each other over minor details and decide to divorce.  They take their own decisions without thinking about the child.  By deciding to stay apart from each other, they end up getting divorced.  This makes the child’s life uncertain.  Parents start a new life like any other and the child has to stay in an orphanage.

  Therefore, common marital problems should be resolved among themselves.  One should refrain from divorce thinking about the future of the child.  So, the child’s parents should be made aware to solve marital problems.  In that case, the number of orphans can be reduced by making society aware of taking the advice of the marriage council. Tell them about this issue in World Orphans Day.

  • Avoiding the decision to have a child from an illicit relationship

Many children in our society do not know their father’s identity.  Sometimes girls get cheated on in love relationships.  As a result of unwanted pregnancies, mothers abandon their children for fear of not being able to introduce them to the father after birth.  And the orphanage after that child is placed.  So socially unmarried women should be made aware of the issue of unwanted pregnancy. Make them aware in World Orphans Day.

  • Help the poor family in your neighborhood

Many families around us have more members but less financial income.  The parents of all those families are struggling to support their children.  As a result, they are forced to give their children to orphanages.  Therefore, the number of orphaned children can be reduced by helping needy families in the neighborhood. Do something for them in World Orphans Day.

If these steps can be taken in World Orphans Day by the conscious people of society, the number of orphaned children will decrease to some extent.

What is said in various scriptures for orphans?

Unfortunately, society often shows neglect and indifference toward orphans.  Due to the absence of a father, they are also deprived of normal human affection in many cases.

As a result, these orphans and orphaned children grow up with a kind of vengeance.  The thought that man is eating food, but is not getting it, gives rise to jealousy.  The thought that others have clothes, and winter protection, but he doesn’t makes one vindictive.  In this, the behavior of these children is distorted.  As a result, they do not trust anyone easily.  They have an interest in destructive activities.

 So it becomes very easy for them to kill, rape, rob, and do merciless work.  Even most of them become familiar with drugs in one way or another.  A beautiful future life is destroyed.

 For this, it has been asked to pay special attention to orphans.  Someone from among the close relatives should come forward.
