Nahdi medical convoy concludes successful run

Al-Nahdi Mobile Medical Caravan, organized by Nahdi Medical Company in collaboration with the Makkah Region Health Affairs Directorate, has wrapped up its 15-day non-stop activities on a successful note. Over 8,275 pilgrims from Libya, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Malaysia, Oman, Egypt and other countries benefited from a range of services, including medical examinations, organized as part of the activities.

The medical team forming the convoy served pilgrims accommodated in eight Makkah districts as well as those performing the Hajj rituals at the holy sites. The team performed blood sugar tests, measured blood pressure and body temperatures of pilgrims at the holy sites, apart from providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation services. The pilgrims thanked the medical team for their health care services.

Yasser Joharji, CEO of Nahdi Medical Company, expressed gratitude to the Makkah Region Health Affairs Directorate officials for their continued efforts to make the convoy a success. 

“The medical team worked day and night to support the pilgrims and prevent infectious diseases during the Hajj. They also offered advice on essential health precautions and provided the pilgrims with premium primary health-care services,” he said.

Nahdi Medical convoys have been serving the pilgrims for the past years during Hajj under the supervision of the Makkah Region Health Affairs Directorate.
