Daraz Shares Eid With The Underprivileged
In spirit of Ramzan and Eid, Daraz.pk sought to give back to the community with donations to the nation’s upcoming and leading organizations
Daraz.pk, the leading e-commerce platform in Pakistan, spent Eid this year by sharing the festivities with the underprivileged community. The Daraz team distributed clothing items as Eid gifts amongst young students at The Footpath School and the Seylani Welfare Trust, organizations dedicated to the welfare and development of society.
Daraz distributed clothing items to over 300 students at the Footpath School, an initiative of Ocean Welfare Organization to educate underprivileged children in the area. Additionally, over 1300 clothing items were donated amongst people at the Seylani Welfare Trust, a leading charitable organization.
This was Daraz’s way of spreading smiles across faces of numerous young children and their families, to mark the spirit of Ramzan and Eid. Daraz is dedicated to contributing towards the welfare of the people, with a keen focus on the less fortunate, and will continue to give back to society via various CSR campaigns in the future as well.

The company started in Pakistan in 2012 as an online fashion business, but since then has expanded its business model to a general marketplace for quality brands within electronics, home appliances, fashion and many other categories.
