Thanks to your donations through Careem REWARDS and our partnership with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), we have supported 12,395 refugees with cash assistance for rent, utilities, food, and health care costs.
Being ‘Careem’ (generous) is at the core of Careem REWARDS. In addition to free rides and offers, Careem REWARDS makes it easy for anyone to provide life-saving humanitarian aid for refugees. And for displaced people across the region that are living below the poverty line, your donations are making a huge difference!
With your support, UNHCR is ready to deliver essentials to people in need within 24 hours. We caught up with Omer El Naiem, UNHCR’s Senior Communications Officer, to get a closer look at the operation from their largest global emergency stockpile in Dubai:
The supplies include core relief items like family tents, blankets, kitchen sets, jerry cans, buckets, sleeping mats and many other items that are necessary for survival.
Cash assistance allows refugees to live with dignity by preserving their ability to make decisions and spend money based on their needs. You’ve helped them live with more stability and freedom in a time of great difficulty.
A big thank you to everyone that has donated their REWARDS points and helped thousands of refugees in the region!
