Within its support programme to the displaced families registered in its database, which exceeded 25 thousand displaced person, the relief committee for the displaced at the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine as part of its winter season plan for the distribution of thousands of blankets to the displaced families who, live in the Hussaynyat deployed on the roads leading to the holy city of Karbala.
And, according to the statement of the chairman of the mentioned committee Mr. Nafi' Ni'mah Al-Moosawi to the Al-Kafeel Network: "The committee carries on the ongoing program in support of the displaced families within the available means of the holy shrine, aiming to reduce the suffering of these families and to contribute to the lifting of the injustice that has befall on them as a result of their exposure to crimes such as displacement by the Takfiri and criminal gangs, trying to provide them with everything they need from basic life requirements. And, because we are expecting a harsh winter, we have distributed blankets, a step that will be followed by others depending on the availability of these materials and also the number of members of each family, hoping to cover this need for all families."
Adding: "The Committee program included also several kind of support, such as the distribution of electric appliances and other in-kind assistance as well as the distribution of monthly food baskets to all registered displaced families."
Mr. Al-Moosawi called at the end of his intervention the government agencies to intervene in proportion to the size of the suffering of these families and to find radical solutions to the problems they face due to the forced displacement that they were subjected to, as all of what the government, civil society organizations and Karbala shrines does cover only a small part of the needs of these families, especially that we are approaching to a cold winter.
It is to mention that out of its moral duty that goes along with the directives of the Supreme Religious Authority to stand with the displaced families, the General Secretariat of the Holy Shrine of Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) has formed an ad hoc committee to oversee the reception of displaced people coming from the hotspots that witnessed killings and displacement, and works to create the accommodation necessities and living conditions, within the available means for this purpose.
