Careem, the internet platform for the greater middle east and Pakistan, partners with renowned charity organizations such as Rizq and Karachi Relief Trust to support relief efforts by delivering ration bags to communities at their doorstep across major cities in the country.
The current situation has had a major impact on the majority of daily-wage earners leaving them with limited financial opportunities. To come to their aid, Careem is delivering up to 300 ration bags put together by respective charities for deserving families on a daily basis and is expected to scale up.
More than 1500 ration bags have been delivered by Careem captains so far and the number continues to increase as more charities join the cause. The opportunity to work along with government and charities is not only aiding households in severe need but also creating income opportunities for deserving Careem captains in these hard times.
Earlier last week, Careem also joined the Government of Punjab (GoP) in their efforts to create awareness by asking citizens to ‘Stay at Home’ by opting for deliveries of groceries and educating citizens about government’s telemedicine helpline for medical-related queries.
During these unprecedented times, Careem and the Government of Punjab are closely working together to take effective steps for ensuring your safety, while you #StayHome and practice #SocialDistancing. To facilitate #StayHome we have scaled up Careem Delivery so you can get groceries, medicines & other essential items delivered right to your doorstep with ease, ensuring safety and hygiene measures. In addition to this, the Government of Punjab has set up a 24/7 helpline called 'Governor & CM Corona Telemedicine Helpline' through which you can get in touch with doctors for free consultations and advice. Telemedicine Helpline Number: 0304 – 1112101Telemedicine Portal: https://doctors247.online/At times like this, it's super important for us all to put our communities & others before self.#ChaloLetsStayHomeT&Cs:- Careem Delivery available nation wide (operating as per Government directives)- Telemedicine Helpline only available in Punjab

Zeeshan Hasib Baig, Country General Manager Careem Pakistan commented, “This is Careem’s mission of simplifying and improving the lives of people in action, with our teams across the country collaborating with credible charities to help deliver essential items to those in need keeping in mind restricted mobility of people. We believe both private and public entities can be supported by our large captain base and at the same time generate much-needed income support for daily wage captains.”
The partnerships have facilitated government and credible organizations to continue their incredible efforts while maintaining social distancing protocols as people receive help from private and government entities sitting at home with minimum risk of exposure. It has also helped control crowds from gathering and risking further spread of the disease.
