• talabat initiated the QAR 1 donation campaign in collaboration with Qatar Charity to support those in need during unprecedented times, and also make sure customers ordered their groceries online, staying safe and staying home.
  • The campaign has provided 10,000 meals to in-need communities during the COVID-19 period.
  • talabat’s partnership with Qatar Charity is seen as vitally important by both organisations in helping to support in-need communities in Qatar.

talabat, the region’s leading food delivery and grocery platform, is proud to report that in conjunction with Qatar Charity, the organisation has distributed 10,000 meals to in-need communities as a result of the QAR 1 donation campaign.

The campaign, in which talabat donated QAR 1 to Qatar Charity for every grocery order made through the talabat app,  encouraged customers to purchase their groceries online, in order to stay home and stay safe during the COVID-19 period. The donations equated to 10,000 meals, which were then distributed to the in-need communities in Qatar.

Abdulaziz Jassim Haji, Director of the Customer Service Department at Qatar Charity believes that the campaign creatively encouraged people to stay at home, while truly making a difference to local communities.

‘We would like to thank talabat Qatar for addressing our cause creatively. During this period, it is important for the community to gather their efforts and support those in need.  This has been a challenging Ramadan and COVID-19 period for a number of families and individuals and the QAR 1 campaign successfully provided them with the support required,’ Haji said.

Francisco De Souza, Managing Director of talabat Qatar, is proud of the community spirit Qatar citizens and residents have shown right throughout the COVID-19 period.

‘I’m glad to see the community pulling together through our platform to provide the support many require during this pandemic. For every order made by our customers, they’ve supported someone in need. talabat Qatar will continue to look at ways to creatively support the local community as it did through the QAR 1 campaign with Qatar Charity.’

‘I would like to thank Qatar Charity for their astounding efforts in addressing important causes across the country, which we’re proud of playing a role in making this happen. talabat is always on the lookout to help the local community and aims to make a difference – despite the distance,’ De Souza said.

Throughout the COVID-19 period, talabat has been proactively contributing to the community’s needs, ensuring the safety and welfare of customers and drivers through safe delivery measures, to helping restaurant partners and the local communities.
