14 October 2014
The heads of Hajj medical missions of a number of Arabic and Islamic countries lauded the health services provided by the Government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques - May Allah protect him - for serving the pilgrims in this year's Hajj season.
In this context, the Head of Moroccan Hajj Medical Mission, Dr. Abdul-Malik Kuala, said, "The efforts exerted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the health sector to receive the pilgrims represent an honor for every Muslim. For example, the first thing to be observed is the hospitality with which patients are received on heading to the hospitals. Indeed, that is what we have found as a hajj medical mission." 
Dr. Kuala added, "Another thing to be noticed is the quality of the therapeutic and health services provided for the patients without any discrimination, and the good communication that we have touched from Saudi health authorities, as well as the quick response to our queries.” He went on to say that “the best evidence in this regard is to be found when we follow up the status of our patients currently being treated in the hospitals of the Holy Sites, as we are updated with everything concerning their health status.” 
Further, he continued his praising by saying that "there is a another point to be highlighted in addition to the previous ones; which is the quality of the human resources and the latest medical equipment, besides the wide range of medicines available in all health facilities, so as to be ready to address any health emergencies among the 'guests of Allah' (pilgrims), as well as the efforts made by the ambulances during all the Hajj period."
On his part, the head of the Medical Committee affiliated to the Bahraini Office for Hajj and Umrah Affairs and the head of its Hajj medical mission, Dr. Ali Ahmed Al Bagara said, "In the beginning, I would like to congratulate our brothers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the big success achieved in organizing this year's Hajj season and the huge efforts exerted in the service of the pilgrims."
He added "I would like also to applaud the Saudi Ministry of Health for its medical efforts exerted in providing the best health services for the pilgrims, considered among the highest services provided in the field of mass gathering medicine, in terms of the number of hospitals, the latest preparations and the intensive care provided for the patients by highly qualified physicians from all specialties."  He added that such efforts made by the Hajj medical teams have been touched by all Bahraini pilgrims, particularly those who suffered health problems and admitted to the Saudi hospitals under the care of Allah in the first place, and the medical teams in these hospitals.
Likewise, Dr. Fedianshah Murshid Ahmed, director general of the Indonesian Pilgrims' Medical Office, said, "On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Indonesian, I thank the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the healthcare it provided for the pilgrims, including Indonesia pilgrims whose number ranges from 160,000 to 220,000 pilgrims."
Dr. Fedianshah added that nearly 50 pilgrims from Indonesia were suffering high health risks due to their old age; which makes them in need for health care in many cases. Meanwhile, he expressed his gratitude for the attention and support shown by the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom to the health of those pilgrims in the same way as the pilgrims of the other countries.
