As we all know, 2022 was a difficult and painful era for a large number of countries. We had waged countless conflicts in which victims endured both silent and public suffering. Despite great suffering and fear in their hearts and souls, humans had endured their entire existence. The purpose of this day, which is marked on January 6, is to raise awareness of the devastating circumstances that war orphans must struggle with. Along with their loved ones, several children had also lost their lives. The mission of the event is to promote consciousness about the necessity to uphold the human rights of children who have lost both parents to war and to inspire action to provide a better future for them.
There are presently 27 active hostilities globally, reports the Council on Foreign Relations Global Conflict Tracker. The focus of the day is to brighten the prospects of the kids whose livelihoods were negatively influenced by the revolution's consequences. Standing Up for War-Affected Children is the motto for the current year, and it strives to draw more attention to the obstacles vulnerable kids confront and the best ways to satisfy their needs. Children are this generation's destiny, and our nation bears a heavy share of the blame for the children who don't have access to necessary resources because of the pandemic that occurred.
