The Cleanliness Division of the Service Affairs Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine is one of the important divisions because it has a great role in showing the aesthetic aspect of the holy city in general and of the holy shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and its surrounding area.
The Al-Kafeel Network had met with the head of this division, Mr. Riad Khudair Mohsen, who stated: "The staff of our division and all of its working units have several duties, such as cleaning the holy shrine, its doors, Iwans and the entrances of the holy sanctuary in addition to the extension's basements and also the adjacent area to the shrine of Aba al-Fadl Abbas (peace be upon him) and parts of the square between the two holy shrines as well as the squares used for prayer and accommodation of the visitors."
He added: "The work of the division is not limited to the cleaning works, but the staff execute also other works such as cleaning the sanitary complexes of the holy shrine, preparing the parasols spread outside the shrine, furnishing the squares or basements with carpet for the congregational prayers. We also carry out the periodic washing of the shrine and the holy sanctuary of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), in addition to periodic washing and cleaning of the streets leading to the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine."
He concluded by saying, "Our work is continuous around the clock, where the staffs are divided into three work shifts using special equipment that are available for them, in addition to recruiting volunteers to help them during the days of special Ziyarat, which are experiencing a great momentum in the number of visitors."
