Assistance Provided To Iraqi Citizens
The reality of living in a war torn battle zone is that there are innocents that are left behind. Recently a number of different families were given encouragement and blessings by a member of the Naval Chaplain service.
The United States Marine Corps and affiliated Navy Chaplain service has been working to identify those families without fathers, and they identified 10 families that have widows trying to raise families alone.
These families are dealing with the reality of not having a breadwinner, and because of this the Marine Corps has mounted an effort to try and help.
Members of the Marine Corps and Iraqi Police arrived with supplies and materials to be distributed to the 10 families who are without male wage earners.
This event brought a lot of smiles and happiness to the families, who have had a rough time with life since losing their male family members. Each of the families have had a different route to where they are now, and they are now on the radar for additional assistance in the future.
Because they are without male wage earners, the families have been identified to the Iraqi government, who will take over to make sure that they are doing okay from this point on.
This is just one example of how the coalition and Iraqi Security forces are trying to work to make sure that different affected members of the local communities are not falling through the cracks.
Operations such as this continue, and will help to identify the members of the Iraqi community most in need.
