7 tips for taking care of the mental health of orphaned children


The world celebrates on the first Friday in the month of April every yearWorld Orphan DayMany simple people and elites from the people of politics, art, literature and thought visit orphans, present gifts and participate in the celebration of this day.

The idea of ​​celebrating the orphan and dedicating a day to him was launched by the British “Star Foundation” in 2003 AD.

In Egypt, one of the charitable societies is considered one of the most concerned with the orphan.

In 2003, one of the volunteers from the association suggested setting aside a day to ask about the orphan, to bring joy to his heart, and to draw the world’s attention to the orphan’s emotional and material needs.

This idea received great support from public figures and the Ministry of Social Solidarity, and in 2006 the charity obtained an official decision to allocate and celebrate an orphan’s day by the Council of Arab Ministers of Social Affairs in its twenty-sixth session.

In 2007, the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States agreed to sponsor a conference organized by the Charitable Society for the Care of Orphans.

Thus, the idea moved from the Egyptian domain to the Arab domain, so the first Friday of April became a day dedicated to celebrating orphaned children.
