Saudi Arabia, the land of the Two Holy Mosques, holds a special place in the hearts of Muslims all over the world. Saudi Arabia is honored and privileged for embracing to what considered as "the house of Allah" (i.e al-Kaʿbah) where Muslims head to for their prayers and their destination to perform Hajj and Umrah, as well the Prophet's Mosque in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah. For that reason, the people of Saudi Arabia have the advantage to serve the two holy mosques, giving every effort to insure comfort and calmness as well required services for the visitors.
Realizing the urgent requirements and demands by those pilgrims, the government of the late King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al-Faisal Al-Saud, since the establishment, were giving high priority on the protection of the two holy mosques and providing everything that guarantees performing the rituals of Hajj and Umrah with ease and safety.
Furthermore, as elder pilgrims or those suffering from health issues while performing Hajj or Umrah might encounter emergency cases or disasters, same situations might also happen to other pilgrims, the Saudi government established since the earlier stages an official organization that is responsible for health care and emergency services for all Saudi and non-Saudi pilgrims. Those services, especially the ones given to the pilgrims, were not limited to one specific party. For that, the medical system at that time, known as public health and ambulance association was assigned to take responsibilities for providing health care and emergency services.
