Stay home, and we’ll move what matters.
A month ago, everything changed. The world turned upside down. A company that moves people started asking you not to move.
In this critical time, stopping is the only way forward. However, essential and healthcare workers are still in motion. Uber has made a commitment to help move these workers to the frontline, by giving away 10 million free rides globally. Uber in Pakistan has received some of these rides and will be distributing them through various initiatives.
Uber Medics – through the launch of Medics, Uber in Pakistan is providing 13,000+ free trips and thousands of discounted trips to healthcare workers in Islamabad. 4 hospitals with COVID-19 wards have been selected, namely Shifa Hospital, Benazir Bhutto Hospital, Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), and Railway Hospitals. As lockdowns are lifted, Uber Medics will be launched in more cities.
Donation – to support NGOs working tirelessly to gather and provide basic necessities to the most impacted communities, Uber in Pakistan will be giving away 10,000+ free trips to help move their workers to the frontline. Hands and Pakistan Red Crescent Society are the two NGOs that are being supported.
In the spirit of Ramadaan, the month of giving, Uber will be working with Edhi Foundation and Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS), ensuring health and food items reach all those in need across the country. Uber in Pakistan will give over 21,000 free trips to help their teams of doctors and volunteers move easily, when servicing the community.
In addition to this, Uber in Pakistan has launched a Delivery product to cater to your essential needs (grocery and medication). With this product, you can now request a delivery person to bring an order of under 10kg to your doorstep. In Lahore, Uber Grocery is a dedicated service to bring your essentials from Alfatah stores to your doorstep.
While we support the needs of our local healthcare system and our communities, we are also enabling drivers to follow the government’s safety precaution guidelines, and equipping them with the right personal protection.
Stay home, and with drivers and delivery people, we’ll help #movewhatmatters. Together we can end this virus.
