Health, Safety and Social Services
Safety is a top priority for every ConocoPhillips operation worldwide. We are committed to supporting organizations that connect citizens and families in need with basic human or social services to ensure their safety, health and well-being.
Love & Hope Program
The Love & Hope Project was developed by the China Association of Social Workers (CASW) and the TEDA International Cardiovascular Hospital (TICH) of Tianjin to fund heart surgery for two- to 14-year-old children born with heart conditions or who suffer from heart disease. The project is specifically aimed at orphans and children from severely deprived families.
Between 2008 and 2015, ConocoPhillips donated RMB 5.75 million (approx. US $1 million) to fund heart surgery for about 400 severely underprivileged children born with congenital heart disease. In addition to donations, the company’s Employee Volunteer Committee frequently calls on employees to visit children receiving treatment at the hospital.
In addition to donations, supported by the company, Employee Volunteer Committee frequently call employee volunteers to visit children receiving treatment at the hospital. They bring toys and snacks and play games with them. In 2011 and 2013, a book shelf and children’s books were donated to make a reading corner in children’s rest room. Employee’s visit and companion brings happiness and consolation to the children. Since 2012 each child has received a photo album with volunteers’ wishes and photos taken during their stay in hospital as a gift.
Heart to Heart Program
In October 2013, ConocoPhillips signed an agreement with Children’s HeartLink, a non-profit organization based in the United States, to increase access to treatment for children with congenital heart disease at the West China Hospital of Sichuan University in Chengdu, China.
Under the agreement, ConocoPhillips provided RMB 1.87 million (approx. US $305,000) to Children’s HeartLink to support a three-year program to increase the capacity of the hospital’s pediatric cardiac unit to treat and care for more children with congenital heart disease. The program focuses on increasing the number of pediatric cardiology and critical care staff by setting up training systems for pediatric cardiologists and cardiac intensive care physicians, as well as the creation of a comprehensive and specialized pediatric cardiac center. It also supports the hospital’s development as a regional training center, enabling it to reach a greater number of children by enhancing the expertise of more medical professionals.
Children’s HeartLink has been working in partnership with West China Hospital since 2006 to promote sustainable cardiac care for children with congenital heart disease in China.
Beacon of Hope Program
"Beacons of Hope" offers health check programs to underprivileged children in Beijing. The program was initiated by two high school students from Dulwich College in Beijing. They identify local migrant schools where students are deprived of health or medical checkup in some cases, from birth.
Between 2010 and 2013, ConocoPhillips China donated RMB100,800 (US$16,000) to the program to fund medical checkups for 500 students from 3 Migrant school. Staff and their family members helped as volunteers at the checkup and their contribution was highly appreciated by the hospital and the Schools.
