Pilgrims healthcare provisions a top priority in Imam Reza shrine: Custodian

The custodian of Imam Reza shrine has called healthcare provisions for pilgrims one of the top priorities, second only to the administration of the shrine.

Speaking on the sidelines of a ceremony to inaugurate eight health and educational projects in Imam Reza Hospital, the custodian of Imam Reza shrine Hoj. Ahmad Marvi said: “Everyone should value whatever they’re doing wherever they are, particularly healthcare workers and specialists who are responsible for people’s wellbeing”.

He cherished those involved in the healthcare system and referred to the occupation as one way to approach God, stating, “Serving people is highly approved in our religious teachings, and this is God’s blessing to healthcare workers”.

“We may endure lots of vicissitudes; however, pain and sickness are unbearable. Therefore, medical science is a human mission and responsibility and calling it a profession would reduce its lofty standing”, added Hoj. Marvi.

Custodian of Imam Reza shrine also commemorated healthcare workers who sacrificed their lives, especially during the Covid pandemic, noting: “After taking care of pilgrims needs, Imam Reza shrine has prioritized health provisions for society”.

Elsewhere in his remarks, he touched upon public donations and said that the daily expenses of the shrine and cultural, welfare, and other services to pilgrims were covered from the money donated by the people.

Pointing to various social services provided by Imam Reza shrine such as buying dowries, houses, etc. for deprived families, Hoj. Marvi maintained, “The shrine organization will always do its utmost to serve the public, particularly the underprivileged”.

Elsewhere in the opening ceremony, Dr. Saeed Karimi, the provincial deputy of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education expressed thanks to Imam Reza shrine for its unswerving support. “The northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad has become a medical hub in the country providing health services to both Iranians and non-Iranians; however, we’re faced with a number of problems in medical equipment, which are being considerably resolved by the shrine administration”.

Also, head of Imam Reza Hospital in Mashhad, Dr. Mahmoud Shabestari, thanked the shrine administration for equipping the medical facility, noting: “Imam Reza shrine has paid for the eight medical and health projects by the money from the public donations”.
