In light of the devastation wrought by the recent Typhoon “Odette” (international name: “Rai”), Grab Philippines is rolling out key initiatives to help boost ongoing recovery efforts in Cebu. These initiatives aim to provide Cebuanos with better access to basic necessities and support the revival of local businesses and microentrepreneurs.
Cebu is key to Grab’s journey in the Philippines, and with the many challenges the province continues to face, Grab is committed to helping improve the daily lives of Cebuanos by leveraging its super app strategy and platform. . When Typhoon “Odette” hit the country, Grab immediately partnered with the Philippine Red Cross and Ronald McDonald Kindness Kitchen, where users can donate to the respective relief efforts through GrabPay and GrabRewards Points.
With electricity and grid reception still intermittent in Cebu, Grab continues to support its Cebuano stakeholders by providing better access to basic necessities through the following measures:
Grab has dedicated its Cebu office to serve as a help desk for drivers and delivery partners needing power and network reception for their devices. Grab has also partnered with Phoenix Petroleum for dedicated refueling slots for drivers and delivery partners.
In partnership with local Cebu small and medium businesses, Grab is fully funding a consumer campaign offering 20% off all GrabFood orders through February 2022 and will also provide affordable meal options to Cebuanos through GrabFood. These initiatives will leverage the power of the Grab platform to provide Cebuanos with greater access to a wide selection of affordable meals while stimulating the recovery of many local businesses and microentrepreneurs in Cebu.
