The funds to support the volunteers of the popular mobilization opened by the Department of religious Affairs at the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine continues to receive donations of the believers to sustain the battle momentum against the terrorist gangs of ISIS, inspired from the words of the Holy Prophet (prayers and Allah's peace be upon him and his holy Household) saying: "He who equips a fighter has fought himself," and in compliance with the directives of the Supreme Religious Authority to support the security forces and the volunteers of the popular mobilization, to take care of their families and to honour their martyrs and contribute to the healing of the wounded.
The donation boxes were put in several places to receive donations, including inside the holy shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), in the Department of gifts and vows to receive in-kind or material donations, and along the courtyard between the two holy shrines. There is an unrivaled motivation from the visitors who want to participate in this action of Jihad with their brothers who fight on the battlefields. The disbursement of these donations vary, but all goes to the fighters of the popular mobilization or to their martyrs or to their families.
For widening donation outlets, the Department of Religious Affairs has recently opened a bank account in Al Rasheed Bank, branch Al-Husayn under the number 526, the account number is (104-132) to be the official account to receive these donations.
It is to mention that the purpose of this donation campaign is to support the forces of the popular mobilization who have answered the call of the Supreme religious authority for the defence of Iraq and its sanctities, and in accordance with the directives of the supreme religious authority which urged and emphasized the support of the security forces and the volunteers of the popular mobilization as they are engaged in the midst of a fierce war with the enemies of God, which requires additional efforts in order to sustain the momentum of the fight against this aggression, especially the volunteers of the popular mobilization, which a large section suffer from a lack of material resources.
