What is the Orphan Solidarity Day (OSD)?

Importance of Orphan Solidarity Day

In addition to enabling orphans and volunteers to get together in different countries and regions, this program is also important in terms of raising public awareness about “orphanhood.” With the different projects, we want to personally give the message to the orphans in their homelands that  “we are with them” to give them hope for the future and to remind them that, “they are not alone.”
