Pakistan Hajj Volunteers Group (PHVG) was initiated in 2011 by Pakistani expatriates in Saudi Arabia committed to selflessly serve the pilgrims of Hajj. United by faith and driven by the spirit of volunteerism, we offer guidance, assistance, and support to the Guests of Allah during their sacred journey in Makkah Al Mukarramah.

Join us in this noble mission of serving the guests of Allah SWT, where every act of help is a step towards earning the pleasure and blessings of Allah SWT.

The operation of the group commenced in 2011 with only 85 volunteers from all walks of life, since then the number has kept on increasing and has reached in thousands. The volunteers provide assistance and guidance to the pilgrims (Hujjaj) from the 9th to 12th of DhulHijjah in Arafat, Mina and Azizia.

PHVG conducts all its operations, while adhering the Saudi laws, rules and regulations. PHVG works under the guidance and support of Pakistan Hajj Mission, Pakistan Consulate Jeddah, and Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh along with Saudi government and local volunteer organizations.

The volunteers are not paid any kind of stipend, salary or remuneration for their services, as all volunteers perform this honorable service of helping and guiding the pilgrims to seek the pleasure and reward from Allah swt.

All Pakistanis above 16 years of age, having valid Saudi residence permit (Iqama) can join PHVG as volunteers. PHVG volunteers are not allowed to perform Hajj during the Hajj days, i.e. from the 8th to 12th of DhulHijjah, as the main responsibility of the volunteers is to help and guide the needy Hujjaj during those days.

Success Story

Pakistan Hajj Volunteer Group (PHVG), is a volunteer service organization of Pakistani expatriates based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The operation commenced in 2011 with only 85 volunteers to provide help and guidance to pilgrims (Hujjaj) in Mina, since then the number has kept on increasing. The successful operation of PHVG has been supported and applauded by the Pakistani community, Govt. of Pakistan and Pakistan Hajj Mission and Saudi Ministry of Hajj along with local Saudi volunteer organizations. PHVG trained and deployed thousands of volunteers to serve the pilgrims in Mina and other holy sites during the months of Hajj.

Every year PHVG mobilizes volunteers from various parts of the Kingdom conducted hundreds of training sessions in order to fully prepare volunteers with necessary information and skills for effective performance of various services for pilgrims. Up to 5th of Dhul Hijjah, PHVG volunteers from Makkah conducts training session for pilgrims' residential buildings in Azizia, Makkah Al Mukarramah and provide training and guidance to Hujjaj in performing rituals of Hajj and general understanding of locations in Mina, Muzdalifah, Arafat and Azizia.

A control room was set up from the 9th to 12th of DhulHijjah, with experienced and senior volunteers just outside Mina, in Azizia district of Makkah to provide guidance to volunteers and pilgrims with 24 hours help line numbers during the operation.

During Hajj operations from 10th to 12 Dhul Hajj, teams of 10 to 15 volunteers were deployed at all key locations in Mina to assist pilgrims round the clock. Every year thousands of lost pilgrims were guided by dedicated volunteers towards their Tents in Mina, whereas, hundreds of exhausted, sick and elderly pilgrims were taken to their tents and clinics or hospitals with the help of wheelchairs or ambulance services from Saudi Government.

PHVG volunteers also provide special assistance to sick or injured pilgrims with the assistance of Pakistan Hajj Mission's medical team to perform an important ritual of Hajj, i.e. Tawaf-e-Ziarat (circumambulation of Kaaba) because of their inability to travel to Makkah.
