Talabat Qatar has announced that during the Holy Month of Ramadan, QR 1 will be donated from every purchase of groceries on the Talabat 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. This initiative is aligned with Qatar’s mandate to encourage members of the community to stay safe and stay home in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Francisco De Sousa, Managing Director of Talabat Qatar, is proud to continue to work hand-in-hand with Qatar Charity, its long-standing charitable partner.

‘This is the second Ramadan we have collaborated with Qatar Charity. This time with setting up a virtual restaurant on the Talabat app to provide the people of Qatar with a cashless donation option to buy meals for those in need.

‘For every purchase from any store under the Grocery section, one riyal gets added to the Qatar Charity fund to support their charitable endeavours,’ he said.

Ali al-Ghareeb, director of the Resource Development Department at Qatar Charity has applauded Talabat for its wonderful gesture, especially at an unprecedented time when the whole world is under the threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, noting that such support would enable Qatar Charity to help the vulnerable and those affected by the coronavirus.

Qatar Charity is always keen to cooperate with the various public and private sector institutions,” added al-Ghareeb, urging other companies and individuals to support Qatar Charity’s Ramadan campaign that aims to benefit 2.4 million people in Qatar and other 30 countries across the globe at a cost of QR 119 million.

Since the launch of the grocery section on Talabat, the app has expanded the list of grocery stores available including Carrefour Now, Spar, Vision Mart, and neighbourhood markets.

Toy stores, electronics, pharmacies, and even water refilling stations are now also delivering via Talabat.

To donate, open the Talabat app, select your location, and click on groceries.

Consumers can download the app through AppStore or Google Play.
