Careem Deploys Free Rescue Rides Post Cathedral Attack, Uber Joins Forces

Careem Egypt has launched a new nationwide initiative, offering free rides to all hospitals in Egypt for blood donation, in light of today’s explosion inside Cairo’s Coptic cathedral that killed at least 25 people and injured 49.

The company has sent text-messages to its users in Egypt, announcing that “Careem is offering free rides to Demardash and Dar el Shefa hospitals for blood donation.. Use promo code “donatebloodegypt” and save people’s life”.

Careem took it to social media

Putting the competition aside for the sake of the country in crisis moments, Wael El-Fakhharany, Careem’s Managing Director asked Uber’s Tino Waked on Facebook to do the same, the late in an act of responsibility too responded with “Uber created a promocode “SupportCairo” for free rides to/from all hospitals in Cairo”

Such a great spirit from both Wael and Tino. We thank you guys for presenting the best of Egypt in such moments.
