C&W employees support flood relief efforts in Trinidad

Employees across all Cable & Wireless markets in the Caribbean and Latin America celebrated the company´s annual “Mission Day” recently by several community partnership programs and internal activities across the region, the company said.

Mission Day is a company-led activity where team members come together to support a variety of community projects. This year, the focus was two-fold: work with the C&W Charitable Foundation to raise funds to support employees and communities impacted by the recent devastating floods in Trinidad and Tobago; and to create special moments in communities across the region where they live and work.

The teams worked with local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to support their community initiatives. They also helped to refurbish local schools and undertook several community and beach clean-up projects including painting and planting flowers; some employees provided career counselling and gave motivational talks at juvenile correctional facilities while other employees distributed care packages with the assistance of community nurses to shut-ins, amputees and persons living with disabilities.

The Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation was set up by C&W Communications as a response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the devastating hurricanes in 2017. The Foundation focuses on both critical rehabilitation projects and longer-term sustainability programs. The Foundation is funded by C&W Communications, part of the Liberty Latin America group of companies, its employees, as well as a variety of partners and other donors.
