Covid-19 pandemic has been stressful for all of us, but our frontline warriors have been affected the most by it. It’s because of them we can have a sound sleep at night and to make sure that they feel appreciated, Abu Dhabi is offering something special to them. The frontline workers now have free access to two popular Abu Dhabi cultural sites.
Frontline Workers Can Visit These Two Sites From October 21 For The Next Six Months
The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) will provide free entry to Qasr Al Hosn and Louvre Abu Dhabi to medical and non-medical professionals and volunteers to laud their efforts. Starting from October 21, our heroes can avail this offer for the next six month. Each front line worker can take up to three guests with them. Speaking about this initiative, Saood Al Hosani, undersecretary of the Department of Culture and Tourism, said,
“Art and medicine are linked by a shared higher purpose: the betterment of humanity. Many of our hardworking physicians, nurses, sterilisation specialists and other frontline professionals and volunteers have barely had a chance to slow down for the past eight months.”

The Government Has Also Employed 80,000 Essential Workers In A Programme Recently
To laud their efforts and to make them feel valued, this new movement has been launched. Al Hosani further added,
“To thank them for their dedication, it is our pleasure to offer complimentary access to two of DCT Abu Dhabi’s most spectacular cultural assets, as a way of encouraging them to take some time to reflect, recharge, and reconnect with their creative sides.”
Not only this but last month the government also employed around 80,000 essential workers in a programme to provide them with professional, psychological and financial support. About the initiative, it is overseen by the Frontline Heroes Office, set up by President Sheikh Khalifa in July and operating under the direction of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Now that’s such a commendable move by the authorities!
