What is the Orphan Solidarity Days (OSD)?
Orphan Solidarity Days is a chain of events where IHH visits the countries and regions that has been assisted with IHH’s various orphan aid projects and organizes various activities in these countries. This year, the joyous event will be held by taking Covid-19 measures.
Importance of Orphan Solidarity Days
OSD serves as a means for orphans and volunteers to socialize and create bonds, and it also plays a vital role in building public awareness of the reality of “orphanhood.” With these activities, the message that “we are with you” is personally conveyed to them in their homelands to emphasize that they are not alone.
To give support
Donors can become a orphan sponsor for 150 TL a month. In addition, donors can contribute 10 TL by sending an SMS to 3072 texting ‘ORPHAN.’ Donors that want to contribute larger amounts can donate via IHH’s website or bank account numbers stating the code ‘ORPHAN.’
