Parents seeking relief on school fees in Abu Dhabi must file their requests by April 23.

That's according to the Authority for Social Contribution – Ma'an, which explained that the initiative created for private schools is aimed at supporting parents who've lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 'Together We Are Good' programme also offers parents installment schemes and help to secure tablets as long as their annual school fee is less than AED 20,000.

Parents must file the applications online or dial 800 3088.

The initiative also aims to encourage people and companies to step forward and offer financial or other support for affected families so their education, healthcare, food and basic needs are met.
