  • 2 weeks   ago

Qatar Charity (QC), in cooperation with Talabat, distributed 3,600 food parcels to workers and families affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Ain Khalid, Al Muntazah, and Al Wakrah.

Mr. Mohammed Rashid Al Kaabi, Assistant CEO for the Communication and Development Sector, thanked ‘Talabat’ for supporting Qatar Charity’s humanitarian projects, emphasizing the importance of building partnerships with relevant commercial institutions within the framework of  their corporate social responsibility,  especially in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr. Francisco De Sousa, managing director of Talabat, said that the company is always proud to work hand-in-hand with Qatar Charity, adding the “Talabat” initiative is in line with the efforts of the State of Qatar to encourage people stay home in this period of the coronavirus pandemic.

It is worth mentioning that during the holy month of Ramadan, Talabat announced that QR1 would be donated from every purchase of groceries through its app to Qatar Charity. The initiative will allow Qatar’s residents and citizens to make a difference in the lives of people who need it the most, but from a safe distance.

 

 

 

Last year, Qatar Charity signed a co-operation and partnership agreement with Talabat to sell virtual meals through the latter’s website, in support of the charitable projects and relief activities implemented by Qatar Charity.

Under the deal, the two parties have agreed to add Qatar Charity to the list of restaurants available on Talabat’s website, as a virtual charitable restaurant that will sell three virtual meals at QR20, QR50 and QR100, respectively. They have also agreed to transfer donations, collected as part of the purchase of the virtual meals through Talabat’s website, to Qatar Charity’s bank account at the beginning of each month.
