Cable and Wireless Caribbean Establishes Relief fund

Cable & Wireless Caribbean announced Tuesday that it would be supporting the region to the tune of more than US$500,000 in cash and services to assist victims of the recent hurricanes and tropical storms that affected the region.

The company is immediately establishing a relief fund of US$250,000 to assist with aspects of restoration in the Caribbean territories that have been affected by Tropical Storm Gustav and Hurricanes Ike and Hanna.

In addition, the company is providing free calling minutes and other assistance to many of its customers.

In Jamaica, before, during and immediately after the passage of Tropical Storm Gustav, mobile customers were given between 25 to 50 percent additional calling time, each time they topped up.
In Turks and Caicos the cost of all mobile calls are significantly reduced until 12am September 14 and the company is providing special outlets for customers to re-charge and top up their phones.
