talabat Reiterates Commitment to Support Local Communities in Jordan
In line with its ongoing efforts to bring positive impact to the communities it’s part of, talabat—the region’s leading local tech platform—has reiterated its commitment to supporting several local initiatives across the Kingdom during the second and third quarters of 2022.
Encouraging Community Giving and In-app Donations
As part of its overall tech for good commitment, the company kicked off the second quarter of the year with several community initiatives and charitable activities during the holy month of Ramadan.
This included donating 890 meals to the Jordanian Food Bank, as well as collaborating with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) to support the donation and delivery of excess food collected from restaurants, while also encouraging customers to donate meals.
These initiatives and talabat’s in-app donation function resulted in donations of JD39,627, and 10,815 meals.
Supporting Orphans and Children in Need
talabat has continued to lend considerable support to orphans and children in need: as part of its ongoing partnership with SOS Children’s Villages Jordan, during Eid Al Fitr, talabat employees volunteered their time to the Make a Wish Come True campaign and bought gifts for the children at the village.
The company also supported the organization’s recent youth camp by providing 50 meals from 99 Grill. It hosted a back-to-school event, with 15 talabaty volunteering their time to participate in fun activities with the children.
Kids were provided with meals from Texas Fried Chicken, while talabat’s tMart gifted each child a giveaway bag containing stationery and a variety of fun treats.
talabat Jordan also continues to further health- and safety-related causes across the Kingdom.
talabat signed a memorandum of understanding with the Elia Nuqul Foundation, an organization that provides educational scholarships and training programs to local youth.
The company also expanded its support for marginalized and underprivileged communities by signing a memorandum of understanding with Be Positive, an organization that helps people with disabilities enhance their participation in society.
Commenting about these initiatives, Hind Lahham, Corporate Responsibility, Public Affairs, and Communications Manager at talabat Jordan, said: “At talabat, we believe strongly in the importance of maximizing the positive impact we can bring to the communities we are part of.
"We are determined to support local non-profit organizations and partners with whom we share a common vision, so that we can amplify our contributions to these communities."
