UAE is going to provide free education to some 700 kids of frontline heroes.
The Ministry of Education (MOE) confirmed that these children studying in public schools will get to study for free until they complete Grade 12.
The ministry announced the initiative to recognize the efforts of frontliners in fighting Covid-19.
“We thank the UAE government for this great initiative. Education is important to everyone and having kids of frontliners study for free makes us love our job even more and gives us the courage to continue taking care of people’s health and saving lives,” Dr. Sajeev Nair, a pulmonologist at LLH Hospital in Musaffah, told Khaleej Times.
