Komodo has a long history of supporting charities and social projects that have crossed the path of founder Mark Bloom (aka Joe Komodo) over the years. Raising both awareness and funds which enable these organisations to continue their important work.
Some projects have seen Komodo's support and involvement for many years now. Others are relatively new or were shorter term projects and we hope to make our contributions sustainable.
A heart felt thankyou goes out to each and every one of you that has helped us support these projects through buying Komodo or directly donating to the charities.
Komodo have supported the wonderful Sunrise Orphanage for many years. Since Joe first met their charming and inspiring founder Emma Taylor at the famous Upstairs Jazz bar in Kathmandu.
The problems of the Maoist insurrection and effective civil war that raged in Nepal for years caused many problems. For us and the garment industry it caused massive upheaval, but the disruption it gave us was nothing compared to the thousands of Orphans whose parents were victims of the bitter and twisted conflict.Find out more here
