Mecca, Saudi Arabia: The Tawafa Establishment for Non-Arab African Pilgrims has introduced geospatial technology in all its activities and services as part of its commitment to provide excellent services to the guests of God, its chairman Abdul Wahid Burhan Seifuddin said.

The chairman said the establishment has developed detailed maps for the Holy Sites and pinpointed the accommodation of pilgrims in Mecca using GNSS technology. “This has made it easy for concerned authorities and the establishment’s employees to remain in direct contact with the pilgrims,” he added.

He said the establishment has secured the necessary equipment, programmes and qualified manpower that would help it carry out its duties satisfactorily. “Our aim is to provide pilgrims with the best of services that will enable them to perform the Haj rites with ease, safety and comfort,” he added. Seifuddin pointed out that the work of his establishment reflected the aspirations of the Saudi leadership.

“Under the follow up and guidance of Haj Minister Fouad Al-Farsy, we have deployed all our human and material resources for the comfort and convenience of the pilgrims,” he said.
