Two Deliveroo drivers in Dubai have been given a bonus of AED50,000 which they say will ‘change their life.’
Thousands of Deliveroo drivers across the world were recently given a bonus as part of the company’s ‘Thank You Fund.’
Muhammad Khurram and Muhammed Zeeshan Ali were the two lucky Deliveroo drivers in Dubai.
And considering they earn around AED4,500 a month, their bonus really is a life-changing amount.
“Some of my colleagues, they were so happy for me, and some – at first – were jealous,” Muhammad told The National. “I have never been a rich person. Now I am a rich person.”
He’s now planning on investing his bonus in starting his own cafe in Pakistan so he can be closer to his family.

Ali meanwhile didn’t believe the news. Literally.
“It was a big surprise and a big amount of money, so I just forgot about it and didn’t tell anyone.
“After a few days, I got an email from the corporate office and that’s when I knew it was real.
“It is a huge amount of money. It is one year’s salary and it would take me three years to save this amount, so it will totally change my life.”
