The Al-Kafeel Women’s Religious Schools Division of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine organized a celebration for more than (100) orphans from the holy province of Karbala, based on the saying of the Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household): "Be kind to the orphans of others so that your own orphans will equally receive kindness. Whoever among you affords generosity to an orphan will be rewarded by Allah being generous to him on the Day of Judgment", and in order to contribute to their moral and psychological support and to draw a smile on their faces.
The Head of the Al-Kafeel Women's Religious Schools Division, Mrs. Bushra al-Kinani, told Al-Kafeel Network: "Based on the directive of the Senior Official of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, His Eminence Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, and in line with the care shown by the Holy Shrine for this group of society, we held this event, which is one of the activities carried out by the division, and which is coinciding with the birth anniversary of the father of all orphans; Imam Ali (peace be upon him).”
She added that "the celebration event, which was held at one of the sites of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine and sponsored by it, included a variety of activities that included entertainment and sports, in addition to a chanting and poetic activity presented by a group of orphans."
Al-Kinani continued, "The event also included other activities such as the free drawing and coloring for children, as well as the establishment of a cultural competition, in addition to providing a blessed food meal from the host restaurant of the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), to conclude with the distribution of a set of clothes presented by the Afaf shopping mall of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine.”
She concluded, "The interaction of these children assured us that orphans must be cared for and celebrated throughout the year, to share their joy and deepen the sense of society's role towards them, and trying to draw a smile on their faces and to consolidate the principle of social solidarity."
In conclusion, the mothers of orphans and the institutions that sponsor them thanked and praised the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine for this initiative, which they described as neither strange nor new, as it indicates the depth of the sense of responsibility towards this group.
