ZALORA has launched a community outreach programme in its markets across South East Asia to lend support to the COVID-19 relief efforts. The fashion e-commerce platform has gone live with dedicated pages for e-donation drives, in collaboration with local market non-profit organisations.
With movement restrictions around the region, ZALORA introduced their Essential Supplies category, expanding their customers’ access to basic necessities while remaining safely at home.
To support those directly affected by the virus, ZALORA’s partnerships around the region are as follows:
Through the activation of an e-donation drive, ZALORA Philippines has pledged to assist numerous organisations including the Philippine Red Cross, Caritas Manila, the Ayala Foundation, World Vision, GMA Kapuso Foundation, and Hybrid Social Solutions Inc. Proceeds from the fundraising efforts will go to medical frontliners and underprivileged families for access to basic necessities during the enhanced community quarantine in the Philippines.

Together with The Singapore Red Cross, ZALORA Singapore has activated an e-donation drive to raise funds for customised care packages and psychosocial support calls for senior citizens living alone, and sanitisation kits for volunteers and staff who continue to provide humanitarian services to the vulnerable.
The care packages will benefit seniors across SRC’s ElderAid, Medical Chaperone / TransportAid, and Home Monitoring and Eldercare (HoME)+ services. In consideration of the varied needs of its beneficiaries, the care package will comprise a mixture of food, medical, hygiene and household items.
The contents of each package has been carefully curated based on beneficiaries’ feedback, and are customised for each elderly beneficiary, bearing in mind their most immediate and essential needs.
In conjunction with their 8th anniversary celebration running from 27 April to 3 May, ZALORA will also be donating 10 masks to the Singapore Red Cross with every S$100 spent.
Meanwhile, social media support has also been activated with a campaign to give back to local community heroes, and drive awareness to the e-donation drive initiative.
