As usual in most of the important Ziyarat of the holy shrines in Iraq, the Water Division of the Service Affairs Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine participated in providing its services to the visitors of Imam al-Hadi and Imam al-'Askari (peace be upon both of them) in Samarra.
The official of the division, Haj Ahmad Hanoon, who was there, told us about the natures of the services provided to the visitors, saying: "It is an honor for us to contribute to giving water to the visitors extending their condolence to Imam al-Mahdi (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance) on the martyrdom anniversary of his father Imam al-Hassan al-'Askari (peace be upon him). And this is not the first time we provide our services here, as we had previous participations following the plan put and supervised by the General Secretariat of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, which set up all related matters to providing RO water to the visitors from the station of the holy shrine as well as providing them with ice from its factory, in addition to water goblet provided by the al-Kafeel water factory of the holy shrine."
Adding: "We have mobilized all of potential, starting from the early morning hours until late at night according to the pre-designated axes that witness the movement of visitors. The plan included the deployment of dozens of water reservoirs in the roads leading to the holy shrine that are supplied periodically with water by special vehicles, in addition, a large station was set up to provide the visitors by cold water goblets in the various roads inside and outside the city."
Indicating that the work was divided into groups: a group responsible for the distribution of pure water by specialized vehicles to the owners of the processions and filling the water reservoirs spread on the roads leading to the holy shrine and others responsible for sustaining water stations for the visitors, which are stations containing a number of water reservoirs and a group responsible for the distribution of cold water goblets for the visitors in the special stations.
