Through Daraz Cares on www.daraz.lk, customers can donate to verified charity partners and other not-for-profit organizations working to solve a multitude of developmental challenges and meet pressing needs. More importantly, 100% of every donation made through Daraz Cares goes to the charity or organization of choice, with no hidden charges or additional costs being incurred at any point of the donation or transaction.
The Daraz Cares “Charity and Donation” page is listed under the ‘Home and Lifestyle’ category on Daraz, which makes donating as easy as placing an order. During the month of May, Daraz has partnered with Child Action Lanka to raise funds for their ‘Help My Friends’ campaign, which focuses on keeping children and parents together, thus providing these children much more secure and stable futures.
Many families in Sri Lanka struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis. To make matters worse, the ongoing economic crisis is pushing many families further into poverty. In this backdrop, many parents are compelled to leave their children for work far from home and some children are also dropping out of school to gain employment and contribute to household incomes to meet health and nutrition requirements.
Child Action Lanka’s ‘Help My Friends’ campaign seeks to raise funds to support the financial requirements of a child’s day care/after-school care, nutritional requirements, school supplies, and other educational expenses. The donations made through Daraz Cares to Child Action Lanka will, therefore, enable parents to seek work close to home and ensure they are not separated from their children for months or even years, thereby also protecting children from different forms of abuse that could take place when separated from their parents.
