Daraz Bangladesh (daraz.com.bd), a concern of Alibaba Group has rolled out a relief program with Bidyanondo to help the needy and affected people during the Covid-19 crisis. The voluntary organization has recently gained recognition for its innovative approach towards food donation through One Taka Meal or ‘Ek Takay Ahar’.
To provide food facilities, this organization has set up a fund where the customers/donors can donate cash through Daraz (100 taka to 5000 Tk) or one can also buy ration bundles (rice, pulses, flour, flour, oil) from the Daraz app in order to help the people. In this case for each donation, customers will make a prepayment worth 75% of the product and the rest 25% will be beared by Daraz. Moreover, Daraz’s (daraz.com.bd) own logistic support Dex (Daraz Express) will also be involved in this charity to deliver food / donations to the poor.
On this occasion, that Chief Commercial Officer of Daraz Bangladesh, Fuad Arefin said- “We are delighted to be able to help the poor besides continuing the responsibility of providing consumer benefits in the midst of this crisis and we hope that by working with Bidyanondo we can do something good for the country.”
