PRT observes children’s day in Chaghcharan

CHAGHCHARAN, Afghanistan – An ISAF provincial reconstruction team recently celebrated International Children’s Day with the Chaghcharan Orphanage.

Troops from PRT Chaghcharan took candy and toys to the orphanage May 25.  The orphanage houses up to 300 children.

“This is a very special day, because it is Children’s Day,” said Col. Dalius Polekauskas, Provincial Reconstruction Team Chaghcharan commander.  “We are here to make Ghowr province a secure province for all, but especially for the children.”

Without parents, the orphans need encouragement by teachers or other adults, said PRT officials.
