In order to contribute to the education and sensitization of Iraqi families with all the surrounding social problems, the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has opened a center specialized in family culture that deals with all these matters and contributes to the psychological stability of the family. It works to provide psychological services for all members of the family and follow them through an integrated plan aimed at developing a trained team with available means.
The announcement of this inauguration came during the opening ceremony of the second annual international cultural festival of Spirit of Prophethood, as the Senior Official of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, announced it during his speech at the opening ceremony of the festival, praising the project and called on those in charge to exert more effort for the sake of its success and expand it.
The center official Dr. Nedal al-Hadidi stated to al-Kafeel Global Network that: "The headquarter of the Center is the Center of Siddiqa Taira (peace be upon her) of the women's activities of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, and it will provide its services to the Iraqi society in general and in Karbala in particular, especially after that the community reached a large degree of Family disintegration, and in order to reduce the divorce cases rampant in our country in a frightening way and dissolving marital and family problems, the need was persistent to open a specialized center in this area."
She added: "After extensive studies, we found that most of the problems of families are due to lack of awareness, and with a closer look at Iraqi society, we see the alarming numbers of divorces that some families have reached, so the work of the center will be preventive as well as therapeutic. And we have developed a preventive action through the establishment of many educational seminars, as the center aims to stabilize our families by working to raise awareness of women, because women are the basis of the family and can lead the family to safe haven. And we also have a special section of psychiatry to address difficult cases, and we aim through all these procedures to make the family reach safe haven."
