One day after the United Arab Emirates announced an increase in support for its low-income citizens, the website of the Ministry of Community Development stopped working due to “the increasing number of applicants and inquiries” about the program.

On Monday, the United Arab Emirates announced a doubling of its program to help low-income Emirati families with price increases, according to the Emirates News Agency.

This program comes through the Ministry of Community Development and includes support for basic needs such as food, water, electricity and fuel.

And on Tuesday, the Ministry of Community Development said on its Twitter account that its website “is witnessing pressure due to the growing number due to the submission of requests and inquiries for the honor of His Highness, the President of the State.”

She added, “As she apologizes for this slowness, she confirms that her technical team is currently working to quickly avoid this issue and that the site will return to normal in the coming hours.”

The site has completely stopped working for some time.

In terms of fuel, the program will provide support to “reduce the impact of fluctuations in fuel prices globally” by providing a monthly subsidy of 85% of the increase in fuel prices above 2.1 dirhams per year. liters.

The government will also carry “75% of food price inflation as a commitment to provide the necessary assistance to Emirati families to enable them to meet their living standards and provide them with a decent life.”

This comes after fuel prices rose again in the UAE.

The population of the UAE is about ten million, of which about 90 percent are foreigners.

At the end of last April, the International Monetary Fund expected consumer prices to rise in the UAE by 3.7 per cent compared to 0.2 per cent last year.
