"In the Division of University Relations, we have declared our readiness, as every year, to bring in a large number of volunteers to be distributed in the centers of missing and lost people, which are scattered on the roads leading to Karbala as well as the centers inside Karbala," said Azhar al-Rikabi, head of the division.
He added: "The volunteers who are expected to be recruited are specialists and have the expertise in this area, and also students of Iraqi universities and institutes, and this is done through the coordinators of the Division in various Iraqi universities."
It is noteworthy that these centers work to help the missing and lost persons finding their relatives.
