The Program is available in both Arabic and English languages.
Dr. Al-Yamni added that the program runs on the internet to the effect that all who have access to the internet can use such a program freely. And it notifies those who filed reports about the existence of compatibility with the information of those who have reported their missing via the mobile and e-mail. In addition, it helps the hospitals look for the compatibilities between those recorded in them and the reports filed by the pilgrims, Tawaf foundations, and Hajj expeditions. And it secures communication between the injured and missing recorded in the hospitals and the Tawaf foundations and Hajj expeditions. Furthermore, it helps find the missing and injured without the need to check in the hospitals, and provide the possibility of knowing the addresses and details of the hospitals, where the injured and missing were admitted to.
