Founded in 2006 after an outcry by British pilgrims at Hajj 2005 who felt let down by their tour operators and that there was no one to represent them, CBHUK was born. The charity continues to work at grass roots to raise Health and Safety awareness and provide overseas travellers with essential and practical advice. We have worked and partnered with many local organisations such as IMWS in Batley, Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCoM) and Bolton Council of Mosques (BCoM) and Statutory bodies such as the NHS, Dept of Business, the CAA (ATOL) to name a few. This has bought about positive changes into the Hajj and Umrah travel industry and we continue to work on the behalf of British pilgrims and overseas travellers to address their issues.
In 2008 we launched the Hajj & Umrah vaccination clinics, ensuring pilgrims comply with the requirements of the Saudi Ministry of Health to be vaccinated against the ACWY strain
