To honour the healthcare heroes, Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Grant Families with full school scholarship under Hayyakum initiative.
The Crucial services provided by front-line healthcare workers and the grave risks they take in the line of duty have never been as pivotal as they are today, as the world fights a deadly pandemic. These frontline healthcare professionals are the backbone of our society right now and playing a significant role in dealing with Covid-19. This is exactly why His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, launched “Hayyakum,” an initiative that will provide scholarships for children of frontline healthcare professionals to attend public schools across the UAE.
In A newly released video, the healthcare heroes and families are shown extending their deepest gratitude and thanking His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for supporting and acknowledging their efforts.
Aiding The Families Via Hayyakum Initiative:
Professionals working on the frontline have been very grateful for receiving support from H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed and for having their hard work recognized and appreciated. Under the Hayyakum initiative, not only financial stresses are taken care of, but also promises a high-quality education which will ultimately encourage the long-term retention of frontline healthcare professionals in the UAE.
The Scholarships Cover The Cost Of Tuition, Laptops, And Transportation:
As of yet, almost 1,850 children of frontline healthcare professionals across the UAE have received the scholarships, which have now commenced and run until the year of graduation. The scholarships cover the cost of tuition, laptops, and transportation until graduation from high school.
This Initiative Is Part Of A Wider Collaborative Framework:
The Frontline Heroes Office will support a comprehensive range of frontline professionals, including medical and non-medical staff working in the health sector, such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, cleaning and services personnel, as well as protection and prevention workers, security and emergency workers, and sanitisation workers.
Last but not the least, a very thrilled and contented staff nurse Suheir Abuhasnah showed her gratitude and said “I am very happy that my son was chosen to receive the scholarship as we know he is in safe hands. We are very grateful for the UAE government and leadership for making our lives much easier.”
