MAKKAH: The General Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques has worked on helping the lost quickly find their way back to their families through smart wristbands.
This is thanks to the information in the smart wristbands and guidance codes for non-Arabic speakers.
The undersecretary-general for social and voluntary services, Amjad bin Ayed Al-Hazmi, said that the presidency is keen to provide the best services to visitors to the Grand Mosque, to raise social responsibility and activate the role of external visits.
Al-Hazmi said that the presidency is continuously serving young visitors and providing quality services to ensure that they are not lost or are returned quickly to their families.
The wristbands contain contact details of relatives to make it easier for authorities to communicate quickly with parents.
The presidency has also activated a guidance codes program to welcome children and provide codes for non-Arabic speakers and wristbands to avoid getting lost in crowds. (https://arab.news/r49vt)
