To extend support to the low-income population across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic, foodpanda, a leading delivery platform in Asia Pacific, has launched a donation drive for the second year in a row.The donation drive, known as 'foodpanda cares', brings foodpanda into collaboration with multiple NGOs and enables consumers to make donations to the NGOs available on the foodpanda platform, says a press release. At present, foodpanda is collaborating with five NGOs- Bidyanondo Foundation, It's Humanity Foundation (IHF), Footsteps Bangladesh, JAAGO Foundation, and Bangladesh Cancer Aid Trust (BANCAT).
As part of the current donation drive, foodpanda and its partner NGOs will be providing basic amenities to the low-income population. These amenities will include--safe drinking water, hygiene products, essential groceries, and food items. The initiative will also provide families and individuals with access to medical care and with grants and necessary stipends.
Through 'foodpanda cares', the company will facilitate customer donations with ease and convenience. foodpanda users nationwide will be able to donate funds on both the foodpanda mobile app or website throughout the month of Ramadan. Customers will be able to customize their donations by choosing packages from each NGOs selection of offerings.
About the initiative, Ambareen Reza, managing director and co-founder of foodpanda Bangladesh, said, "As a company committed to serving communities, we feel we must support those in need. Last year, during Ramadan, we received great responses and engagement from our customers. So, once again, we encourage our community to step forward, and help those in need by donating via the foodpanda app or website. We also invite other organisations to join us in helping the vulnerable citizens."
