Cable and Wireless plc said Wednesday that it will donate $1 million to establish a relief fund for victims of Hurricane Ivan.
The global MSO added that its employees “are being invited to make additional private donations to the fund.”
C&W said it will work with relief agencies and local authorities in Grenada, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands to be sure that the funds are earmarked for the areas that need them the most.
“Our colleagues in Grenada, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the other businesses involved in the recovery work are making extraordinary efforts and contributing enormously to the recovery of their communities,” C&W CEO Francesco Caio said in a prepared statement. “The Cable & Wireless Group wants to provide all of the practical support we can.”
