According to the statement, Cheniere has made contributions to organisations in locations where the company has facilities or offices, including Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Washington D.C., the UK, and China. These donations will help reduce food insecurity for those most in need and supply provisions and equipment for first responders and frontline healthcare workers.
Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and CEO, said: “This pandemic is global, and now more than ever we need to do our part to support the communities where we live and work.
“We have implemented additional safety and preparedness measures with own our employees and contractors worldwide, and now we are arming communities with the equipment and funds they need to continue providing critical services.”
Activities undertaken by the company as part of, or in addition to, the more than US$1 million donation include the following:
- Cheniere partnered with the City of Houston, Project C.U.R.E. and the Astros Foundation to host a ‘no touch’ supply drive to provide Houston’s frontline workers with personal protective equipment and announced a public match fundraising drive of up to $50 000.
- In coordination with its Beijing office, Cheniere partnered with global organisations and donated medical supplies to hospitals in Hubei province, China.
- Cheniere is providing meals for frontline healthcare workers and first responders in Louisiana and Texas.
