Liberty Latin America has established the Covid-19: LLA Employee Emergency Assistance Fund to provide a direct relief to eligible employees and their families who are facing unforeseen financial distress or an emergency hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The Fund will be seeded with an initial contribution of more than $300,000 from the Liberty Latin America Board of Directors. Additional funds will be raised through an online giving campaign, which also kicks off today.
“These are uncertain times, but the way we are seeing our employees come together to support one another and lift each other up is a true testament to the culture we have created across our business. Our employees come first, and this is at the heart of who we are at Liberty Latin America. We want our employees to know that we are here for them and their families throughout this crisis and we will be here long after it’s over,” commented Balan Nair, President and CEO of Liberty Latin America.
The Covid-19: LLA Employee Emergency Assistance Fund will be administered by the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation. All full-time employees of Liberty Latin America or any of its subsidiaries will be eligible to confidentially apply for needs-based assistance, while donations made through the online giving campaign may be tax-deductible for US based taxpayers.
In conjunction with the launch of the Fund, Liberty Latin America has continued to deliver essential connectivity to customers, communities, and countries in the region when they need it most.
