World Orphans Day is a global event to raise awareness and funding for the millions of children displaced by AIDS and poverty. United Nation designated that every 1st of May “World AIDS orphans Day” in 2002. Originally orphans and bereaved child are different. So those who have been active to save orphans for a long time are trying to establish “World Orphans Day” separately.
The movement to establish “World Orphans Day” has officially begun in Korea this year because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of Tauchi Chizuko’s birth. She is called Mother of Korean orphans. She is originally a Japanese, but she married with a Korean and dedicated herself to saving orphans in her whole life. In conclusion, she was given the Order of Korean Culture and People’s in 1965.
In commemoration of her birth, some special events to promote the establishment of World Orhapns Day will be held from October 29th to 31st, 2012 in Mokpo-si, Korea. And Jang Keun Suk will attend one of the event held at 20:00 ~ 21:30 on October 30th (the eve event of her 100th anniversary). He seems to make a speech about something related to Korea and Japan.
