Supporting migrant workers
Migrant workers in Singapore were among those heavily affected when COVID-19 hit in 2020. With a sizeable migrant worker community in Singapore, many TotalEnergies employees were concerned and felt compelled to help this affected community in a tangible way. The “TotalEnergies Singapore Stand Together Fundraising” project was birthed out of collective compassion, care and concern for the migrant worker community and in partnership with Singapore Red Cross Society.
Singapore Red Cross
Singapore Red Cross is dedicated to relieving human suffering, protecting human lives and dignity and responding to emergencies.
With the employees contributing and TotalEnergies Singapore matching dollar for dollar, over $40,000 was raised to supply and deliver hygiene kits to 15,500 migrant workers living in dormitories.
To support our non-profit partners’ fund-raising efforts, TotalEnergies in Singapore also hosts an annual campaign to raise funds in conjunction with SG Cares Giving Week.
The campaign in December 2021 and 2022 promoted partners such as Waterways Watch Society, Beyond Social Services, SingTheatre, Singapore Red Cross and the Halogen Foundation and more.
SG Cares Giving Week
SG Cares Giving Week is a key initiative of the national SG Cares movement held annually from 1 to 7 December, that celebrates the spirit of giving and seeks to make giving part of our way of life.
Fundraising through live music
In 2021, TotalEnergies Singapore’s Exploration & Production (EP) employees, Francois Meurine and Jean-Francois Hery formed their own bands and performed ‘live’ in Sing’athon, by Sing’Theatre, an annual 12-hour fundraising concert to bring live music to underserved communities and assisted in raising more than $50,000 for the initiative.
Sing’Theatre is committed to bringing music to everyone to provide cultural exposure to all, stimulating creativity, active citizenship and societal cohesion.
