Hajj Ministry announces insurance for pilgrims

Wed, 2019-12-11 22:23 JEDDAH: Hajj and Umrah Minister Mohammed Salih Bentin and Tawuniya Chairman Sulaiman Al-Humaid signed an agreement on Wednesday to provide insurance for pilgrims coming from outside Saudi Arabia. The signing took place at the Hajj and Umrah Ministry’s headquarters in Makkah. As part of the agreement, the ministry will provide health and other insurance services to pilgrims from the time they arrive in the Kingdom until they leave. This comes as part of the Vision 2030 reform plan, which aims to enhance pilgrims’ experiences. Bentin said the insurance will be linked to the visa as soon as the pilgrim arrives in Saudi Arabia. There well be a hotline, and pilgrims will be served by teams who speak multiple languages. Abdulaziz bin Hadsan Al-Bouq, CEO of Tawuniya, which has been awarded the contract for four years, said the Kingdom is developing innovative methods to provide health services and reduce accidents at holy sites. This project, he added, is supported by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and each insurance covers an amount of SR100,000 ($26,665) per person.

Hardware chain Home-Fix is closing all its retail stores in Singapore

Hot on the heels of Sasa's move to shut down all stores in Singapore, another well-loved brand is bowing out of local malls. Home-Fix has been quietly shuttering its stores in Singapore over the past year. This week, its last two outlets in Tampines One and Tanglin Mall will be closing shop for good, marking the end of an era for the local hardware chain, according to a Business Times report. The decision comes amid reports of financial trouble for the company, which reportedly owes creditors $19.8 million and is undergoing interim judicial management. Home-Fix's founder and managing director Low Cheong Kee, 55, had also embarked on a «right-sizing» exercise in recent years, reducing the number of stores in Singapore from 23 in 2014 to 16 in 2018.
