Dubai government approves $11.98 million of social benefits for Emirati people

The Dubai government has approved $11.98 million worth of new social benefits for Emiratis with disabilities in the emirate, state-run agency WAM reports.
The benefits will be available for those under 60, who have physical or mental impairments and require support from others.
The benefits, the agency also noted, cover devices and technology, the adjustment of vehicles and the cost of equipping the workplace to accommodate people with disabilities.
The allocation also compasses fees for kindergartens, schools, university programs, and training and rehabilitation centers within specialized institutions, as well as the expenses for teachers, caregivers, personal assistants and sign language interpreters. It is hoped more people will benefit from the allowances as the Dubai government continues to expand its coverage, the agency added.
