Daraz has opened international payment gates to encourage Pakistani citizens from outside Pakistan to donate to non-profit and help day-to-day wage earners and families in Pakistan’s under-served areas in order to address the effects of the latest coronavirus.
Daraz Cares, the leading ecommerce platform’s CSR wing, recently launched “Together Lets Help Pakistan” – a donation campaign – in partnership with a number of well-reputed non-profits including Edhi Foundation, Indus Hospital, UNAP, Akhuwat Foundation, Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust, AlKhidmat, SIUT, Deaf Reach, Orange Tree and Rizq. The platform is not charging any commission on donations, which are being directly transferred to the organisations.
Daraz’ goal is to help more than 5,000 families and with the help of donations sent in by customers, the platform has reached 1,500 families already.
By opening up international payment gateways, Daraz has enabled Pakistanis residing in any part of the world to donate using their Visa or Mastercard credit and debit cards of any bank.
