Orphan Solidarity Day’s 10th Anniversary

This year, IHH will celebrate the 10th Orphan Solidarity Day. In commemorating the day, almost 92.000 orphans will benefit from the 236 projects materialized in 25 countries and regions including Turkey.

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation will spread kindness to 91.548 orphans and their families on the 10th Orphan Solidarity Day (OSD) program this year. The OSD program is scheduled to come with 236 projects that will be held between September and December.

In the chain of projects, IHH teams and orphan sponsors will also be joined by NGO representatives, teachers, activists, press and media members, world figures of literature and art, academics, healthcare workers and volunteers from all occupation groups.

We invite our donors to help us realize the OSD program, so that together we can bring joy to as many orphans as possible by supporting one or more of our OSD projects. For more information contact 0212 631 2121.

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.”
