First Aid Services for Community Collaborations for an Active Role as a Civilian in Combating Challenges

The "Rohama Baynahum" team, consisting of female volunteers from the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa in partnership with different universities, and the Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain A.S. This team demonstrated their commitment to providing essential first aid services to the underprivileged members of society during the world's largest annual mass gathering event in the city of Karbala. This event commemorates the Martyrdom of Hussain (Peace Be Upon Him) and His devoted companions, who valiantly fought for justice during challenging times against a tyrannical ruler. Operating in small groups of 5-6 individuals, these dedicated female volunteers attended to various critical areas that demanded immediate attention in terms of first aid and emergency services. Multiple groups worked simultaneously, with subsequent batches seamlessly taking over, ensuring continuous coverage. This collaborative approach not only fostered valuable lessons in teamwork, emergency response, and empathy but also allowed these volunteers to assist and support those in need. For a duration of ten days, these tireless female volunteers provided uninterrupted, round-the-clock first aid services near the Holy Grave of Imam Hussain A.S and His companions. The gathering comprised individuals from different countries, congregated in limited space. In addition to their first aid duties, these volunteers offered translation services to tourists who required medical assistance and directed them to nearby hospitals or dispensaries whenever necessary. The University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa took the initiative to provide comprehensive first-aid training to all the volunteers, students, and staff from the University of AlZahraa and several other places were also welcome to join the same training, regardless of their backgrounds. This noble cause attracted participation from students and staff members from diverse faculties, extending beyond nursing and medical colleges. By offering their time and skills, these volunteers exemplified their dedication to serving individuals in need of assistance. Maintaining a high standard of hygiene was a significant priority when delivering aid to pilgrims of various ages and needs, as it was imperative to ensure a germ-free and virus-free living environment. Stringent measures were implemented to mitigate potential health risks associated with the continuous mass gathering. Through their unwavering commitment to providing first aid services, these remarkable female volunteers from the University of Warith Al-Anbiyaa made a profound impact on the well-being of the community. Their selflessness and dedication to serving others serve as shining examples of compassion and empathy.
