Before signing up to this scheme, Dhiraagu has been funding the Hajj of 2 staff annually, selected based on a set criterion.

Under this scheme, a set percentage will be deducted from the monthly salary of the employee and saved by the MHC, with the employee being notified on the next earliest Hajj trip he/she can travel on, when the 75% of the total amount payable has been saved. MHC will then make arrangements for the employee to embark on their Hajj trip.
