An ad-hoc committee set up to manage the contributions made to “Feena Al Khair” campaign has coordinated with the education ministry to distribute 10,000 laptops to students from needy families.
The laptops will be used by the students as the new academic year starts with courses to be delivered virtually following the restrictions taken by the authorities to ensure the safety of students and school staff.
The laptop donations are part of the drive by the committee to provide assistance after HH Shaikh Nasser approved several initiatives under a BD17.43 million budget.
The initiatives include supporting needy categories, productive families and business owners not registered in the insurance system, and providing laptops to students from needy families.
They also include contributing to the sanitization of cities and villages, providing food baskets within the “Your food at Home” project, establishing a center for studying and treating epidemics, supporting software and distance learning technologies, and supporting debtors.
