A group of 25 Muslims from Bosnia, Serbia, Slovenia and San Marino can make the pilgrimage to Mecca to perform Haj thanks to the Khalifa Bin Zayed Charity Foundation.

Every year, the organisation helps Muslims from different countries perform Haj, one of the five pillars of Islam.

While seeing the group off in Rome, Abdul Aziz Al Shamisi, the UAE Ambassador to Italy and non-resident Ambassador to Bosnia, Serbia, Slovenia and San Marino, urged the pilgrims to perform the rites in piety.
