KUALA LUMPUR, July 15 (Bernama) -- Approximately 22,320 haj pilgrims will receive a medical kit for treatment of minor illnesses and injuries while performing their haj pilgrimage in the Holy Land this year.

Chemical Company of Malaysia Berhad (CCM) Pharmaceuticals Division director, Leonard Ariff Abdul Shatar said the company would distribute the medical kits worth over RM500,000 to the pilgrims through the Pilgrims Fund Board (Tabung Haji) Corporate Partner Programme.
