The funds which were donated by Careem customers through the Careem REWARDS program have an important impact on the everyday lives of people in need.

Commenting on this achievement, the General Manager at Careem UAE, Gheed El Makkaoui said: “We are extremely thankful for having the ability to improve people’s lives through Careem offerings. Knowing that we helped raise over 180,000 USD to help people in our region through customer donations is humbling, and will hopefully set an example for companies and entrepreneurs in the region. Careem’s mission is to simplify and improve the lives of people – guiding principles when we designed the program. I am hopeful that such initiatives will inspire others in the region to make a positive impact.”
