Careem has partnered with the Shahid Afridi Foundation (SAF) to introduce a donation car ride for its clients named GO Flood Relief as Pakistan experiences devastating floods as a result of unexpected rainfall in several areas of the country.
Customers will be able to donate PKR 50 for each ride they take thanks to the program.
Additionally, Careem will donate to SAF and match all customer tips given to Captains in September in order to aid in the flood relief effort. Additionally, Careem has made it possible for users to donate redeemable points to SAF using the mobile app’s reward tile.
Careem wants to employ technology to facilitate virtual transactions, including charitable contributions. The objective is to remove logistical constraints and streamline the procedure.
“Our heart goes out to fellow countrymen suffering through this unparalleled natural tragedy, and our job is to come forward to their aid,” Feroz Jaleel, Country Head, Careem Pakistan, said in response to the launch.
“We are happy to be working with the SAF, which is leading the relief efforts. The ease with which individuals think about donating to charities will change as a result of Careem. By itself, technology can support a virtual and frictionless process for donations, the speaker continued.
Careem has partnered with a number of renowned non-profit organizations in the past, including Indus Hospital, The Citizens Foundation, World Wide Fund for Nature-Pakistan, NOWPDP, SOS Children’s Village, CYTE Foundation, and Saylani Welfare Trust, and has offered a straightforward and transparent way to give back to the community.
