After pulling off the ‘Rishta aunty’ shenanigan, the ride hailing service Careem is now now bringing ‘Bakra on wheels’.
The service allows users to buy the sacrificial animal for Eid from the comfort of your home as it brings a variety of ‘Bakras’ in a truck at your doorstep.
“Your wish is our command, Careem brings you BAKRAS on demand! Book a FREE ride by selecting Car Type ‘Bakra’ and Careem will bring an assortment of bakras to your location, so that you can buy from the comfort of your home,” Careem said in a statement on Friday.
For this offer, Careem has partnered with ‘Goats for Water’, an organisation that builds solar water pumps and lighting systems for people belonging to rural areas in return for their livestock.
The offer, however, is valid for Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad only.
Although the animals will be available on a fixed cost that is only payable via cash directly to the vendor, the rates of the animal vary city to city.
So, the people of Lahore will have pay more than those availing the offer in Karachi and Islamabad. The fixed rate for the ‘bakra’ in Lahore is Rs30,000, while Karachiites can buy their sacrificial animal for Rs27,000. Buyers from Islamabad are the luckiest of all as they can get the animal for Rs25,000.
We took a ride with a Careem rishta aunty and this is what happened
However, there are certain limitations attached to the offer as the car bringing sacrificial animals to your door step will only deliver to limited areas between 10am-10pm, and is only available for later booking.
The offer is valid till August 27 and only limited booking slots are available.
“By purchasing a bakra through Careem you are not only simplifying your life but also helping a great cause. We wish both these services the best of luck in their endeavours, because if they do well, we all do well. Eid Mubarak! Let’s go!,” the company said.
