A wonderful festive atmosphere filled Mecca’s nursery which is taking care of Hajj pilgrims’ children this year.
The volunteers gathered to organize an Eid al-Adha celebration for thechildren.
The children enjoyed a joyful atmosphere, enjoying the preparations for Eid, creating greeting cards and Hajj greetings. They wrote Eid al-Adha greetings sentences on models of “Sheep” which they made by hand.
The children wore new colorful clothes and played with innocent smiles on their faces. There were children of different nationalities and multiple languages in the nursery reflecting the openness of the Saudi community and its keenness to share happiness and joy with everyone. The babysitters helped the children to organize the party and to experience this occasion with its religious and social dimension, in addition to recording their memories in the nursery with photos and videos.
Amani al-Faqih, who heads the nursery, said: “We were keen to provide many types of communication between the children and their parents during the presence of their families in the Hajj. This was done through various social media applications. The camera monitoring service was also available during their stay in the nursery so that the family can be in direct contact with the children.”
A group of Saudi women of different age categories participated in organizing entertainment activities for the pilgrims’ children in an attempt to delight them during Eid.
This year Saudi Arabia had established seasonal nurseries to protect the pilgrims’ children from overcrowding and the dangers of infection. It aims at providing a safe environment with a qualified human resources team with precise standards in five languages - Arabic, English, French, Malawian and Turkish - to help children to socially mingle.
