In partnership with government entities, charities, and local restaurant partners, Talabat has facilitated over 140,000 food and medicine deliveries throughout the MENA region.
Made up of 116,000 meals provided to communities in need and more than 25,000 medicine prescriptions delivered to chronically ill patients, the initiative has aimed to help those most disadvantaged by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Tomaso Rodriguez, chief executive officer of Talabat, said: “During times like these, as an organisation with a proud Kuwaiti heritage, we wanted to play our part as a local partner in the community. We were able to rely on the great ties with government entities, charities and local partners, who share our same outlook - and with whom we collaborated to support our local communities.
“Our continuous efforts to support local initiatives in our communities are part of our ethos of putting our customers, partners and our communities at the heart of everything we do.”
The huge number of donations was made in collaboration with a number of partners, one of the significant being with Dubai Culture and Arts Authority which resulted in over 50,000 meal donations.
Shaima Al Suwaidi, director of marketing and corporate communications at Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, said: “Our partnership with Talabat is a consolidation of the importance of this cooperation in promoting social cohesion and charitable work in Dubai; our collaboration has always been fruitful and resulted in positive effects on society and look forward to more in the future.’”
