The Ministry of Community Development website is apparently experiencing a technical problem due to the increasing number of people submitting requests and requests from the generosity of the President of the United Arab Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The ministry assured the general public that its technical team is currently working to resolve the issue and that the website will resume normal operation in just a few hours.

Sheikh Mohamed on Monday spearheaded the restructuring of the social support program for low-income citizens, doubling the initiative’s budget from 14 billion dirhams to 28 billion dirhams.

The fund will introduce new allowances for housing, university education and the unemployed over the age of 45. It will also include subsidies for fuel, food, water and electricity.

The decision stems from the leadership’s desire to provide citizens with limited incomes across the country with decent livelihoods.
