Testimonials

For more than 7 Years, the WHUC education and knowledge transfer programs have helped Nigeria raise it’s standards of Pilgrim welfare, service and management.

“I personally commend Mr. Mohsin Tutla – Chairman of the WHUC, an inspirational young man who has championed initiatives that truly add value to the Hajj and Umrah Pilgrimages. The WHUC Hajj and Umrah Excellence Awards will change how the industry approaches professionalism, business, spirituality and Pilgrim’s welfare.”- Lord Adam Patel Chairman of the British Hajj Delegation Representative of the House of Lords, British Parliament
In 2013 as the GM of Sales at Saudi Telecom Company, it was my distinct honour to receive the WHUC Award for best Mobile Telecom Service Provider for both Hajj and Umrah Categories. What impressed me was the fact ZAIN Telecom was the Main Sponsor for the Awards and Conference, yet the honoring process was unaffected by large contributors; STC was presented the best Mobile Telecom Service Provider Award by the hands of our market competition and main Sponsor, ZAIN KSA.</p> <p>This is why I respect the WHUC Awards and Judges, unequivocal integrity!- Ibrahim Al Suwail Deputy Governor Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority.
Hajj and Umrah is of national importance to our government and to our people. It was a moment of national pride and honor to have received the greatest award issued by the WHUC, the Best Pilgrims in the World. We know how hard we work all year round, the thousands of people. This award was a testament to our values and our culture and we are grateful to our colleagues for voting Indonesia and the Indonesian Pilgrims.- Angitto Abimanyu Chairman of the Indonesian Hajj Fund Former Director General of Hajj Affairs, Government of Indonesia
As the national carrier of Saudi Arabia it is our honour to be the Pilgrims favorite airline. We expected to be the winners but it is still very humbling for us. Very grateful to all our staff, the Saudi Government and the people that choose to fly with Saudi Airlines.- Saudi Arabian Airlines Abdullah Al Husseini – GM Saudi Airlines United Kingdom
It was a great honor to have presented the WHUC Award to the winners in 2018. I am grateful.</p> <p>It’s always great to recognise stand-out examples or best practice within the industry, so it’s going to be great to attend the awards evening, to meet the contenders, to see who the winners are and also meet the winners as there really has been some inspiring case studies and best practice- HRH Prince Dr. Saif al Islam Ibn Saud Ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud Member of the Saudi Royal Family
