Vodafone Qatar and Talabat have joined hands to spread the generous spirit of Ramadan by making it easy for customers to donate. From 16 to 26 May 2019, the first 1000 customers who make a food delivery order on Talabat daily, Vodafone will automatically make an iftar meal donation on their behalf that will benefit Qatar Charity’s “Feed the Fasting” programme.

Participation in the initiative has been made seamless for Talabat’s customers and does not require any changes to App settings or use of activation codes. When customers complete their delivery order, they will receive a message from Talabat confirming their automatic donation made by Vodafone. The initiative is not limited to Vodafone Qatar customers and is open to all those who use Talabat. The initiative is being organised as part of Vodafone Qatar’s wide corporate social responsibility programme during the holy month under the banner of the Company’s Ramadan campaign #ShukranFromTheHeart.  

Mohammed Mahdi Al Yami, Director of External Affairs, Vodafone Qatar, said: “Vodafone Qatar is proud of the positive impact our social responsibility programmes make year after year, especially during the holy month of Ramadan. We’re happy to be joining hands with our strategic partner Talabat this year to give back to the community and involve the public in this.” Talabat Managing Director for Qatar Francisco De Sousa commented, “We’re proud to be joining hands with Vodafone and Qatar Charity during the holy month to fulfill our theme for this year of “Generous Hearts, Generous Plates.” We are uniquely positioned to help our customers share delicious food not just with their loved ones, but with the community at large.”   

Vodafone Qatar and Talabat first formed a partnership in February this year when it was announced that Vodafone’s Red postpaid customers would benefit from Talabat Go to enjoy free and quicker deliveries.
