The Chinese transport company DiDi launched its Didi Hero program that will grant 42 million pesos of coupons in travel and food that may be requested by doctors, nurses, administrators, cleaning personnel, and other employees of hospitals, clinics and health laboratories.
This program starts this April 7 and until April 30, the health personnel will be able to register in the DiDi Pasajero app to receive two coupons for trips of up to 75.00 pesos each and three weekly food coupons of up to 95.00 pesos each one. In this way, medical personnel will be able to reach their institutes, hospitals, clinics and laboratories with comfort, speed and safety.
In addition, the company will donate the cost of transfer and delivery of 40,000 basic kits during April to the IMSS Foundation to support people infected with or suspected of COVID-19, according to the digital diagnostic platform of the Mexican Institute of Social Security.
“In these difficult times for everyone, we are putting all the resources of our platform to support the priority needs of the country,” said Juan Andrés Panamá, Director of Operations at DiDi México.
Volunteer drivers to implement this program will benefit from having no service fee and may have access to higher demand during the day on DiDi Hero trips.
The company is offering its volunteers plastic dividing barriers on vehicles, guides and hygiene materials to disinfect vehicles regularly.
One of the institutions that joined the DiDi program is TecSalud, the Tecnológico de Monterrey Health System, who will be promoting it with their health personnel in the coming days, based on a collaboration between DiDi, the FEMSA Foundation and the Tecnológico from Monterrey.
The program will be available within the platform in the coming days.
