Every year, on the highway from Najaf to Karbala, thousands upon thousands of zuwwar are served by the volunteers at The Zahra Trust mowkeb at Pole 470.
For those that have been for the Arbaeen Ziyarat over the years, you’ll have seen the evolution of this mowkeb. From humble begins over 10 years ago to a comprehensive facility which serves thousands of people every day, The Zahra Trust mowkeb has become a staple stopover on the walk for most Western zuwwar.
We always say that Project 470 (as it’s known) is ‘more than a mowkeb’ because aside from serving zuwwar, the building itself is used for aid distribution, as well as for hosting vocational training and classes for kids, all year round.
Furthermore, the site is also home to our Orphans and Widows Village.
