The role of the Department of Intellectual Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine during Arba'een was not limited to the media and cultural activities, but it also played an important role in providing other services to the visitors through its service procession of the lovers of al-Kafeel. This procession, which was founded three years ago, is located at one of the most important road intersections leading to the holy shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), which is witnessing a large movement of the crowds of the visitors, which led its officials to continue to provide the best services to the visitors.
The procession is managed by the staff members of the Department working in the Institute for Information Technology and Skills Development, in addition to the animation unit, and a large group of volunteers from the other departments, who are working like a beehive rushing to serve the visitors tirelessly since the 14th Safar.
The procession offers various services from food and beverages, starting its Hussayni service since dawn prayer, by distributing of breakfast, then lunch and dinner, as well as small meals throughout the day without a specific time, not to mention tea, water, fruits, pastries and others. The number of beneficiaries of these services reaches more than 10.000 daily meals or more during the peak days.
It is to note that this procession will continue providing its services even after the end of the Ziyarat with the same enthusiasm, as most of the processions end their work and services at the end of the Ziyarat. And it is one of the service processions of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine that is registered at the Department of Hussayni Rituals and Processions of the holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and of al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them).
