GHARMAH — Iraqi Police in Gharman provide more than a safe community—they are also helping some of the area’s most needy children.

Gharmah’s Police force, along with U.S. Marine Police Transition Team members, recently pitched in to pass out clothes, school supplies and sports equipment to under-privileged youths in the city.

“I feel very happy to give to the children,” said Iraqi Lt. Col. Dalaf Rasheed, the police chief here. “These are my children. I like these children.”

Dalaf explained the clothing drive will continue to bond the Iraqi Police to the citizens they protect. {Click on image for photo details}
