Yumi founders form charity to help Nepal earthquake victims

The founders of womenswear brand Yumi have set up a charity to help people affected by the earthquake in Nepal.

Uttam Nepal, who is from and still has many ties to the country, and his wife Clare who is the brand’s co-founder, have launched the Yumi Nepal Earthquake Appeal.

Nepal said: “Funds raised will be used not only to support the immediate needs of getting food, shelter and medical supplies to those most affected in remote areas, but also for the longer term rebuilding of the country, which will continue long after the current global media coverage has gone.”

Yumi has produced a special edition dress, with 100% of proceeds going to the charity.
