Gurgaon/UNI: Uber, the world’s leading on-demand, ridesharing company, on Thursday announced that over 90,000 drivers have benefitted from Uber Care, its innovative driver welfare program, in the first year since rollout.

Launched in 2018, Uber Care provides easy access to life insurance, family health insurance, micro-loan(s), etc. to thousands of drivers. The top five cities where the maximum number of drivers were impacted are Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune.

Commenting on Uber Care’s first-year anniversary, Mr Pavan Vaish, Head of Central Operations, Uber India SA, said, ''At Uber, we believe our role doesn’t end at creating opportunities by providing a platform to drivers. We have created a community of millions of drivers, and we continue to engage with them with a view to providing them with more to enrich their lives.''

''Through our driver welfare arm, Uber Care, we have been successful in supporting and empowering thousands of drivers with improved access to life and health insurance, financial support, children's education, and medical consultations. As we move ahead, we envision further strengthening access and impact of Uber Care, thereby enhancing drivers’ overall well being on and off the road,'' he added.

Uber Care defines holistic welfare around two main categories -- Socio-economic benefits and Health and wellness.

As part of socio-economic initiatives, the program considers education, basic needs, creating opportunities for making money and the social system, among others. Health initiatives include medical check ups, and treatments of drivers and their families.
