The Executive Secretary of MAJT Management, KH Muhyiddin poses with members of the Rotary Club.

Semarang – As the number of visitors increases, the Great Mosque of Central Java (MAJT) has increased the number of portable handwashing points. The portable sink is a help from various parties. With the opening of several religious tourism sites (wali pilgrimage) and other tourist attractions, it has an impact on increasing visits to MAJT.

This is the concern of MAJT managers by increasing the number of points for washing hands to prevent the transmission of covid-19.

“The addition of a hand washing place in the MAJT environment is our obligation as managers in order to support government policies to prevent the transmission of covid-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have installed hand washing stations and implemented other health protocols,” explained MAJT Executive Secretary, KH Muhyiddin, after receiving portable sink assistance from the Rotary Club, Saturday (3/10/2020).
