In addition to the Group making fuel vouchers available to hospitals and nursing homes in France, Total Foundation has committed €5 million to combating Covid-19 by addressing three major issues:
- medical research: supporting the Pasteur Institute,
- emergency healthcare: providing medical supplies to healthcare workers and partnering with the Red Cross, in Africa in particular,
- assistance for at-risk individuals: partnering with the Aurore non-profit in providing essential supplies to the severely disadvantaged and with Simplon on the “#Gardons le lien” (#Stay connected) initiative in using digital tools to prevent loneliness and social isolation among the sick and elderly.
Our employees continue to take part in the employee engagement “Action!” program, which has reorganized its work in keeping with health-related constraints and social distancing requirements (academic support, links with the elderly or isolated individuals, etc.).
Total Foundation has also pledged its support to its non-profit partners to help them through the crisis and pursue their work, in particular to ensure that young people continue to have access to learning (distance learning solutions for students at Production Schools and support for Break Poverty in supplying 600 disadvantaged young students with computers). It is also gearing up for after the crisis and its work with partners in education and inclusion for young people will focus on projects aimed at recovering from the crisis.
