While many of us stay at home, front liners such as delivery riders remain hard at work to ensure that Malaysians get their daily needs like food, fresh produce and daily essentials. With Raya around the corner, Ramadan essentials are also needed, making the well-being of these front liners all the more important.
With that in mind, Grab has started delivering more than 1 million face masks directly to the homes of its delivery partners nationwide to help them stay protected as they play their part as an essential front liner.
On top of that, Grab’s delivery network continues to benefit from the health and wellbeing measures the company has introduced, namely:
- Grab ‘Partner Protection Fund’ of up to RM1,000 per driver or delivery-partner: A protection fund to help partners who are either tested positive, or are required by MOH to self-quarantine.
- Grab ‘Partner Relief Fund’ of up to RM300 per driver or delivery-partner: Discount vouchers to help with its partners’ daily household expenses. These vouchers can be used on most Grab services, whether to reload your mobile, or to purchase essential food and grocery items at up to 50% off for their families during this period.
- Improved hygiene practices: Grab’s delivery network can continue to purchase hand sanitisers and Lysol car disinfectants to clean their cars via GrabBenefits.
That’s not all! Grab has also partnered with the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia in their “Kempen Memerangi COVID-19” to provide the Grab Delivery network and GrabFood customers with an anti-COVID care and awareness pack respectively.
Grab has also expressed its thanks for the many kind words and gestures of Malaysians towards its delivery partners and even encouraged people to perhaps leave them a tip as well.
