More than 200 women have been hired this year by the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques. They will work in the two holiest mosques located in Mecca and Medina cities of Saudi Arabia, Arab News reported.
Praising their recruitment, Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and president of the general presidency said that women have achieved massive success at the presidency, which should be praised and highlighted by the media.
“We stand by our leaders to support the Saudi Vision 2030 to empower women and encourage the youth,” he added. He made the comments during his visit to the Haramain pavilion at the Riyadh International Book Fair on Sunday.
“Women have played a historical role in the establishment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Today, the Kingdom is committed through its Vision 2030 to empower women in line with our Islamic values and our national identity.”
“Today, the youth represent 90 percent of the presidency’s members in many different fields,” he added.
In August, Al-Sudais appointed Dr. Al-Anoud Al-Aboud and Dr. Fatima Al-Rashoud as assistants to his office in addition to other senior positions within the organization.
