Al-Anzi stressed the importance of the role played by the KRCS and its contribution in helping the elderly and people with special needs. They volunteers of the society also assist all worshipers at the Grand Mosque with its humanitarian goals to provide first aid, care and comfort for worshipers during the late night prayers.
