War orphan was the term given to Cardassian children abandoned on Bajor in the wake of the occupation. Many Bajorans accepted orphans such as Rugal and Asha, as they did not blame the children for the misdeeds of the Cardassian government. (DS9: "Cardassians")

War orphans could also be Bajoran children whose parents had died during the occupation. A charitable fund, the Bajoran War Orphans Fund, was established to help provide for the numerous orphans that were a legacy of the Occupation. (DS9: "Rivals")
