Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation
Cable & Wireless Communications’ commitment to doing business in a responsible and sustainable way is why we launched the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation (CWCF). The Foundation is a powerful platform to raise and distribute funds to those in need across our markets.
Since its launch, the Foundation has raised US$2.5 million, and committed over US$2 million to recognized local, regional, and international agencies to execute relief and recovery projects in eight countries. These projects help communities across Latin America and the Caribbean to not only recover from crises but support them in becoming more resilient when facing similar challenges in the future. In addition to the recovery and resiliency work, the CWCF also supports activities that enable progress in communities, as part of our efforts to build stronger communities and nations.
The Wellness Challenge
The Wellness Challenge is a peer-to-peer fundraising initiative to benefit communities throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. In keeping with C&W Communications’ focus on the well-being of our people, staff led teams will embark on a series of fitness, health, and wellness challenges while simultaneously raising funds to connect underserved communities, provide students with access to technology, and prepare for and recover from natural disasters.
Funds raised by each region, will be used specifically to support programs at home. A portion of all funds will be reserved for disaster relief efforts.
