During the Hajj season, it was also stated that a variety of volunteer work and assistance was provided to pilgrims.
These were health, organization, community, education, and consciousness.
The ministry stated that young men and women were assisting pilgrims in multiple locations from the moment they arrived,
working with the proper authorities at land and sea ports, airports, grouping and screening points,
all the way to the Grand Mosque and the holy sites in Mina, Arafat, and Muzdalifah, as well as the mosque’s central area.

the Grand Mosque and other sacred places. In terms of organization and hospitality,
this will assist pilgrims to receive the greatest services on the ground.

hours and provides them with a certificate of appreciation for their effort and commitment.
