Denver, Colorado – December 5, 2023: Liberty Latin America Ltd. (“Liberty Latin America” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LILA and LILAK, OTC Link: LILAB) showcased its commitment to giving back in local communities through its fourth annual Mission Week volunteer initiative. From November 13 through 17, more than 1,300 employees in 22 countries gave their time, talent, and resources to a wide range of charitable and service organizations. Mission Week has expanded in scope over the past four years, and, in 2023, LLA employees contributed more than 7,800 hours of volunteer service across Latin America and the Caribbean.
These efforts reflect both the spirit of LLA’s team members and the Company’s commitment to its four Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) pillars: Learning, Environment, Access, and Disaster Relief. During Mission Week, employees found creative, fun, and meaningful ways to serve others. Activities included everything from a coastline clean-up where 2,700 pounds of trash was collected to another project where more than 300 devices were donated to help connect underserved communities and bring online access to schools, small businesses, and non-profits.

This year, more than a thousand of our employees partnered with over 100 local organizations dedicated to serving their communities. It’s so inspiring to see our teams find ways to help others and improve the lives of their neighbors, not just during Mission Week but throughout the year. To support these efforts, LLA is committed to expanding our volunteer programs and we look forward to having an even greater impact in the year ahead.”
