We cannot predict when disaster strikes, but it is our responsibility to mobilize quickly when it does. In the spirit of having a huge heart, Yum! Brands, our employees, franchisees and external partners assist with national and global relief efforts in the event of a natural disaster.
Our teams demonstrate their huge hearts by either providing hot meals, financial assistance, or their time when it is needed. In 2015, the Yum! Brands Foundation provided $50,000 in aid for relief efforts after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal, killing over 8,000 people and leaving more than 21,000 people injured. We also partner with the United Nations World Food Programme to allocate funds raised in our World Hunger Relief program to assist in the event of a natural disaster.
