Talabat, the region’s leading local tech organisation, announced its support for the ‘1 Billion Meals’ initiative, the largest campaign of its kind in the region to distribute vital food support to the underprivileged and vulnerable in 50 countries.
Talabat users can now contribute to the humanitarian initiative by donating easily and securely through the app, to provide vital food parcels and food vouchers to communities in need, by selecting one of the set donation amounts: AED10, AED50, AED100, AED300 or AED500.
All donations made through the platform will be used by the ‘1 Billion Meals’ initiative, organised by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), to support vulnerable groups including children, refugees, displaced persons, and those affected by crises and natural disasters.
Tatiana Rahal, General Manager of Talabat UAE, said,
"We are proud to support the 1 Billion Meals campaign organised by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) to secure food aid for vulnerable communities this Ramadan. By utilising the Talabat app, we are able to provide benefactors with a platform that allows them to safely and easily give back to those in need across the world."
"As a local tech company, harnessing our technology for good remains an integral part of what talabat stands for. It cements our commitment to the communities in which we operate by connecting our large database of customers with trusted charities and enabling them to make a difference. Philanthropy is deeply rooted in Emirati culture and we are proud to call the UAE home by having our headquarters in the UAE and to get the opportunity to contribute to such noble causes,"
