In response to the flood emergency situation in Pakistan, talabat UAE extends its partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP), the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger, to deliver food assistance to those affected in the country.

During the first three days of the campaign, which is set to launch on September 30, talabat will be matching in-app customer donations made towards the cause until October 2.

talabat customers will be able to easily donate by selecting any of the dedicated menu items on the ‘World Food Programme’ virtual charity in the app, ranging from Dh2 for one-day meal donation to a monthly donation of Dh63. All funds raised towards Pakistan flood relief will be donated to the World Food Programme emergency response operation to support the affected families.

Customers can download the talabat application from the Google Play Store, iOS App store or Huawei AppGallery to donate to Pakistan flood relief efforts by searching for the “World Food Programme” on the search bar and selecting their donation of choice.
