The Orphan Care Federation focuses on the principles of excellence and mastery in the implementation of projects, which believes that they are of added value to humanitarian charity. Unfortunately, there is no accurate statistics on the number of orphans and their situation in war countries or countries of asylum, there is also no statistic about the distribution of this category geographically, their health status or even their educational status, all data and figures available in the charity market are inaccurate, and we are in a rush of frightening events as change happens every hour and every day.
This led us to think of a statistical project that contains digital data for orphans, as well as statistical classifications and statistics, which are useful in producing a variety of results such as (places of presence, gender, educational status, health status, etc.). It is an online electronic platform that contains accounts for organizations that allow the possibility of entering digital data and extracting various statistics.
Statistical processes and data contribute to radical changes in society. For example, developed countries provide many statistics on the negative problems of society (such as the number of deaths due to traffic accidents, smoking, etc.) in order to shed light on these problems in order to raise awareness among the community members To avoid it.
And that if there is a precise statistics on orphaned children in places of distribution and their health and psychological conditions and educational situations, for example, many organizations will benefit from these statistics in making sound and correct decisions based on the principle of priority and most needed.
OCF’ strength of this project as being an umbrella organization that contains many humanitarian organizations working with orphans in 8 countries in the Middle East and North Africa and a partnership with hundreds of local and international humanitarian organizations around the world.
The rapid development of events in the countries of catastrophe and war, the rise in the number of orphans and the continuous movement and distribution of them in several geographical areas have led to a gap in this sector: the lack of accurate data.
Despite the efforts of the large humanitarian organizations in providing various services for orphans, including financial guarantees, still, a good number does not have an electronic database of sponsored and non-sponsored orphans, and are recorded on paper in written files, which increases the rate of error.
The lack of coordination and the lack of link between the databases of each organization leads to the occurrence of many problems, including focus on areas and neglect of other areas may be in more need for example.
And that to date, there is no accurate statistics of the numbers of orphans in countries of war and crisis, as statistics today is one of the most important sciences on which political, economic and cultural development depends, etc. Statistics are an essential part of the work of States, domestically and locally, and the fate of major projects or decisions often depends on the results of the census in a particular area.
The existence of a database on orphaned children, such as determining the state of health and psychological status of the orphans and the consideration of the disabled orphan child or those with special needs, determines the priority in the distribution of orphans’ sponsorships, as well as increasing options to ensure a better life for as many needy people as possible.
