Sahuc opens application for hajj volunteers

With processes underway to accredit this year’s hujjaj, the South African Hajj and Umrah Council (Sahuc) is now vetting hajj and medical support staff to assist during the pilgrimage. The five days of hajj will most likely commence on the 30th August this year.

Every year, the hajj regulator deploys a delegation of hajj volunteers and medical workers to assist with the travel and logistics of the South African hujjaj. These volunteers play an important role in facilitating the smooth flow of the pilgrims and for attending to their physical wellbeing.
