Uber Eats and RHA to support vulnerable communities

25 September, 2022

Uber Eats, a food and grocery delivery platform, and the Sri Lanka chapter of the Robin Hood Army (RHA), a zero-funds volunteer organisation, have come together to support vulnerable communities affected by the economic crisis. They will use their platform, scale, and reach, to collect dry ration donations that will be provided to the most impacted families across Colombo.

Customers can donate dry ration packs by placing orders directly on the UberEats app to dedicated RHA collection points across the city. Uber Eats will match the value of each donation made on their app. RHA volunteers, called ‘Robins’, will collect these donations every day from the collection points and help distribute them.

General Manager, Uber Sri Lanka, Bhavna Dadlani Jayawardana said, “We are committed to helping Sri Lanka and the communities that we serve. As a proud Sri Lankan, I would encourage everyone to donate generously and do their bit to help our country emerge stronger from this crisis.”

Mohamed Huzam Hussain of the Volunteer Management Team, Robin Hood Army - Sri Lanka Chapter, said, “At this challenging time, the partnership with Uber is a timely initiative that will use the collective strength of Sri Lankans to support the less fortunate. We are confident that the popular Uber Eats app will help raise significant donations that our Robins will distribute throughout the city. We would call upon every Sri Lankan to support the most vulnerable in their time of need.”
