Accra: Some Ghanaian Muslims expected to participate in the year’s Hajj have undergone orientation at the Dagomba Boy Central in Yendi today.

The orientation entailed educating prospective pilgrims on the guidelines for performing the religious exercise, health education on staying fit during the month-long period, and guidelines on immigration rules and regulations regarding travelling to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The exercise, which has become an integral part of the Hajj preparation activities in Ghana, is being organised by the Ghana Hajj Board for the second time since last year.

It is to be extended to five different locations in the coming days as prospective pilgrims prepare to go to Hajj, with the first fight scheduled to depart on May 28, 2024.

Other venues for this year’s orientation programme included Tamale on May 19, 2024; Walewale on Monday, May 20, 2024; and Bawku/Bolga in the Upper East region, scheduled for Tuesday, May 21, 2024.

In the Ashanti Regional capital of Kumasi, the programme will take place at the Prempeh Assembly Hall on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, and on Thursday, May 23, 2024, at the Hajj Village in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

The orientation has, since its inception last year, been helpful, especially to first-timers to Saudi Arabia and those without international travel experience.

Also to be imparted to prospective pilgrims during the orientation programme is an overview of Hajj 2024 to psych them up for the religious exercise.
