As a large number of faithful Muslims due to the ongoing month of Ramzan, a new center has been established near the Grand Mosque to provide childcare services for pilgrims in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, This is the first time such a facility has been set up in the vicinity of Islam’s holiest site.
The newly established center for taking care of worshippers’ children is located within the Third Saudi Extension of the Grand Mosque in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. It began operating in the middle of Ramadan and is being run with the assistance and oversight of competent government organizations. The facility is specifically designed to look after children who are six years old or younger while their parents engage in Umrah or other religious practices within the mosque, which is the site of the Holy Kaaba.
According to Razan Al Dahlawi, the manager of the center located in the courtyards of the Grand Mosque, it is the first of its kind and is well-equipped to provide a safe environment for children. The center offers a free service for the first three hours, but details about the fees for a longer service were not provided.
