26,000 gifts have been distributed to pilgrims as part of a campaign organized by the Holy Mecca Municipality and the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The gifts include umbrellas to shield from the heat of the sun, prayer rugs, mineral water bottles and booklets that raise awareness and provide health tips in several languages.
The campaign aims to activate the social role of Saudi youths and highlight their role in voluntary work to serve pilgrims. This embodies the social responsibility programs which the Holy Mecca Municipality organized to achieve the kingdom’s aspirations towards achieving Vision 2030.
Meanwhile, Raed Abdullah Samrqandi, the public relations and media department director at the Holy Mecca Municipality, commended the volunteers who employed their energy and skills to help.
He also said that 60 male and female youths from the Saudi Youth Vision Team worked to implement this recent initiative, adding that all voluntary teams who desire to serve the guests of the Great Mosque of Mecca are welcome to help.
