This partnership enables dialysis patients, many who require daily treatment, to travel from their homes to Prince Hamza Hospital and back to receive timely and convenient access to medical care, free of charge as funded by UMR. Careem links a unique promo code to the patients' mobile numbers and the location of Prince Hamza Hospital. The service caters to patients residing in both Amman and Zarqa.

Together Careem and UMR have helped 10 patients to complete 184 trips. UMR plans to expand the service to cater to many more patients by the end of 2023, greatly impacting the lives of these individuals and their families.

Farah Odeh, General Manager of Careem Jordan commented: “We care deeply about the community, and that's why we support initiatives that can make a real difference in people's lives. Our collaboration with the United Mission for Relief and Development enables us to provide reliable and comfortable transportation that is fully subsidized, to make it easier for dialysis patients to prioritize their health. We're planning to extend this service to help individuals with other medical needs, such as those undergoing cancer treatments. Our goal is to make sure that getting reliable transportation for essential medical care is never a worry.”

Since its establishment, UMR has provided assistance in 35 countries around the world in support of  a variety of different causes including health and food security. Donations have allowed them to serve over 9.6 million beneficiaries and provide services valued at $335.5 million to the most underserved communities across the world. UMR in Jordan was established in 2015 to alleviate poverty, hunger, and improve access to healthcare.

Careem for Business, Careem’s corporate travel management solution that operates in Jordan, the UAE, KSA, Egypt, Pakistan, Morocco, Kuwait, Iraq and Bahrain, plays an important role in this mission by providing corporate ride packages for business and NGOs.
