Paga has launched Donate.ng, a platform created to connect credible charitable causes and organisations to support and donate while elevating their efforts in providing help to the most vulnerable in the society.
Through Donate.ng, everyone in Nigeria and around the world can lend a helping hand to combat challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and positively impact the world, one donation at a time.
Commenting on the mission of Donate.ng, Folakemi Falodun, General Manager, Digital Financial Services at Paga in a statement said: “We want to foster a world where living is giving.
“At Paga, we value giving back to the societies we operate in and through Donate.ng, we want to make a difference by creating a platform where more people can lend a hand easily.”
“Paga will ensure that donations are securely made to Donate.ng using local or international cards, Paga wallet or bank transfers.
“During this pandemic, Paga will be supporting each organisation on the platform by donating an additional 10% of every amount donated to each course. In addition, to ensure that the donations go to those that need it the most, Paga will process all donations free of charge”.
The platform was launched with three essential causes targeting the COVID-19 pandemic.
These charities include 1.) Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh (DRASA) set up to train and equip 500 Health Workers to Fight COVID-19; 2.) Kinabuti: Orile Food Aid – set up to help raise ₦1,830,000 to sustain 610 families, and 3.) Flying Doctors Nigeria: set up to help build more Mobile Testing Booths for COVID-19
