Singapore, 24 March 2023

  • This Ramadan, Deliveroo Singapore partners Darul Makmur Mosque to reach over 250 mosque-goers each week by distributing meals for the breaking of fast onsite.
  • Happening every Friday from 24 March to 14 April 2023, this will see the #ComingBackTogether of communities – including Deliveroo riders, Darul Makmur staff and mosque-goers – as they partake in Mahgrib and Iftar together.
  • The initiative welcomes back Singapore’s first Ramadan season at full scale since Covid-19 social restrictions have been lifted.

Celebrating the first Ramadan since majority of social restrictions have been lifted, Deliveroo Singapore has partnered Darul Makmur Mosque to prepare and distribute meals alongside the mosque’s staff and volunteers, to over 250 mosque-goers every Friday across the month of Ramadan. Named #ComingBackTogether, this initiative underlines Deliveroo’s continued commitment to giving back to the community and welcomes back the holy month of fasting in full swing.

Starting from 24 March to 14 April, more than 60 Deliveroo riders will help in the preparation and distribution of dulang (food trays) onsite the mosque for Iftar (the meal eaten after sunset during Ramadan) on every Friday of the month, as part of the mosque’s always-on operations. Playing a significant role in the meaning of Ramadan this year, the dulang signifies the returning to pre-Covid arrangements with shared communal meals to foster greater togetherness.

Extending the spirit of fellowship and community in true Ramadan fashion, each Friday will also see Deliveroo riders, Darul Makmur staff and mosque-goers partake in Maghrib (sunset prayers) and share in Iftar collectively at the mosque.

Deliveroo riders are also invited to join in with their families and friends for prayers and the breaking of fast onsite with fellow mosque-goers. Not limited to just Muslims, Darul Makmur also hopes that such an initiative will draw non-Muslims to partake in the month of reflection moving forward.

“This year’s Ramadan is a very special one for Muslims as it represents a full comeback since the pandemic. To bask in this extra meaningful holy month, we are extremely glad to be able to work with Deliveroo’s network of riders to do good and connect with people. With this being the last Ramadan before we move out of our current mosque for a 2-year upgrading project, the extra support from Deliveroo will help us better cater to more mosque-goers as we can now finally enjoy in-person fellowship as a bigger community,” said Hj Izuan Md Rais, Mosque Executive Chairman of Darul Makmur Mosque.

“We have always been committed to giving back to communities, especially during festive seasons like Ramadan. We are regularly looking for new ways to create positive impacts in the communities we work in and are excited to be collaborating with Darul Makmur Mosque this holy month, while potentially looking at other ways to work together in the future. Recognising how important this Ramadan is to Muslims, especially as communities are once again able to come together in person, we are grateful to have the opportunity to observe this season together,” said Jason Parke, General Manager, Deliveroo Singapore.

Deliveroo has a track record in participating in community-focused activities, including its Delivering Smiles and Heroes to Heroes campaigns, where Deliveroo partnered with charity organisations and the Migrant Workers’ Centre to deliver more than 6,000 Iftar meals to beneficiaries, healthcare, and foreign migrant workers. Beyond engaging riders, Deliveroo also gathered its customers and restaurants, while partnering with TOUCH Community Services, to get behind the Meals-On-Wheels initiative.

“As a Muslim myself, I am honoured to be part of Deliveroo’s #ComingBackTogether initiative. For the first time in three years, we can finally experience Ramadan as it was before the pandemic. I am glad that in doing so, I’m also able to volunteer my time to help out at the mosque and contribute to the community,” said Azri Ali, Deliveroo Rider.
