Please take a minute to check out these 2 new project requests from Iraq:
Help Army Chaplain Murphy Bring Clean Water to Iraq: "..helping us meet the needs of the Iraq population assists Soldiers in winning Iraq's loyalty and in the end this helps protect our Soldiers....The area we are in was formally called the triangle o death in the last eleven months, we have helped to turn that into a triangle of hope. The Iraq people are in great need of medical supplies and clean water. We have great hopes to supply them with solar power water filters of any size and as many medical supplies that we can get. The compassion of the American Soldier is one of the most powerful weapons in our arsenal. When we arm the Soldier with these items and give them to Iraqi families it gives them hope and helps them to understand that the propaganda that they hear about Americans is not true. You can help us to do that." Chaplain (Cpt.) Brian Murphy
Army Sergeant Kaylan Jennings Playground Project to bring joy to families who visit detainees. We currently work at an Iraqi prison in Southern Iraq. "We have over 20,000 male Iraqi detainees here. Their wives, mothers, sisters, friends and children are allowed one visitation a month. I am contacting you on behalf of the children. These families often travel 2-3 days from Baghdad along some of the most dangerous routes in the world. They sleep in cars and on buses. Because the males are usually the main workforce in a family, many of these women and children have nothing. " Army Sergeant Kaylan Jennings.
