Some RO1,500 was spent on stationery, another RO1,500 on school uniforms, while RO3,000 was allocated for school meals. After spending a week to sort out donations, the charity distributed them among schools and Dar al Atta’a families. This year 69 schools have benefited from Dar al Atta’a donations with 4,897 students from schools and 721 students from Dar al Atta’a families receiving stationery items.
