MANILA - Ride-hailing firm Grab on Saturday said donations for fire victims in Navotas may soon be given through its mobile app.

GrabRewards points may be converted into cash donations ranging from P25 to P50, Grab said in a statement.

"Our thoughts and prayers go to those affected by this tragedy in these trying times, and now more than ever, we must all come together to care and assist for each other as one resilient Grab community," Grab said.

"Grab will match the total gathered donated amount," it said.

Nearly 1,000 families lost their homes Friday after a fire gutted portions of Market 3, Barangay North Boulevard Bay North in the fish port city.

Grab will also offer financial assistance packages to its driver-partners in Navotas who were affected by the incident, the company said.
