MINA, June 17 (Bernama-SPA) -- Around 5,500 dedicated health volunteers remain at the forefront of pilgrim wellbeing throughout the Hajj season 1445 AH, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

These volunteers form specialized medical teams stationed at hospitals and health centers across Makkah to ensure a safe and healthy environment for pilgrims.

The medical cadres provide comprehensive services across various locations, including Mina, the Jamarat Bridge, and other key areas with high pilgrim concentration.

Their duties encompass monitoring emergency cases, offering health advice and guidance, and administering necessary medical care within the Grand Mosque and surrounding hospitals.

On the 14th of Dhul-Hijjah, these volunteer teams will return to Madinah and other designated areas to continue providing healthcare to pilgrims during their return journeys.  

Meanwhile in a separate development SPA reported that Saudi women are making a remarkable mark in scouting and pilgrim service within Makkah and the holy sites.

Through public service camps, they have played a vital role in guiding pilgrims and managing crowds at the Grand Mosque, according to the report.

This inspiring journey began just three years ago with a small group of 30 women.

Today, over 200 dedicated scouts excel in assisting lost pilgrims, ensuring the security of the Grand Mosque through crowd management, directing worshippers, and offering aid to the elderly.
