THE CONFLICT IN IRAQ

Poles Plan Trip for Iraqi Orphans

June 15, 2004|From Associated Press

WARSAW — Twenty children who lost their parents during the Iraq war will travel to the mountains of southern Poland this month for a 10-day vacation sponsored by the Polish military and a charity, a military officer said Monday.

The 10 boys and 10 girls, ages 10 to 12, live in orphanages in the south-central Iraqi city of Hillah.

"I would like the children to see a nation without a war, without a conflict," said Lt. Col. Cezary Kiszkowiak of the Polish-led international force in Iraq.

The military will pay about $20,000 for travel, and Children's Dreams will cover other costs.
