As explained to the Kafeel Network, by the responsible for the library, Mrs. Asmaa Al-Abadi: “The webinar was held on the library platform in the International Kafeel Forum - the official forum of the al-Abbas's holy shrine - and was presented by the Director of the Al-Kafeel Institute for teachable Children of the Department of Education and Higher Education in the Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, Professor Sarah Al-Haffar, in which she lectured about the mental, psychological and physical characteristics that characterize this group, and how to deal with them.
She added, "There were also important contributions, including what was proposed by Professor Osama Khattab, as he explained the importance of supporting social institutions, which is divided into two parts: material support and moral support. The material support is to support facilities and infrastructure, especially in the health sector, and public services from electricity to Cleanliness, green spaces, and the use of architectural and environmental experts to provide a safe environment and clean housing in which all basic means and needs are met, in order to support a healthy youth who enjoys psychological balance and physical and mental health.
At the end of her speech, Al-Abadi affirmed: “The webinar, as usual, witnessed great attendance and interaction by the participants, which called for extending the time of the seminar for a longer period than the time set for it, due to the importance of the symposium’s focus and the importance of caring for this group, which must receive special care and attention, to integrate them in society and public life, with the aim of demonstrating their energies and capabilities, and making them a productive group that contributes to the process of developing society and the state."
