Medical Support for Arba’een Pilgrims

The Iranian Red Crescent Society distributed 60 tons of medicine to medical stations along the way to the holy city of Karbala in Iraq as part of the relief aid to pilgrims participating in the Arba’een rituals on November 20, said Head of the IRCS Seyed Amir Mohsen Ziaei on Sunday.
“About 6,500 IRCS personnel were serving pilgrims in Iran and another 2,000 in Iraq, and over 700 pilgrims were received at the medical stations. About 36 ambulances and three medical buses were used for the purpose in Iraqi territory,” Ziaei told IRNA.
Arba’een is a Shia Muslim religious observance that occurs 40 days after Ashura which commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Imam of Shia Muslims. Nearly half of the over two million Iranians who visited Karbala have returned so far.
