Ayusa’s Student Ambassador in Southern Oregon, Julianne Owens, organized a car wash with area exchange students to benefit disaster relief efforts in Pakistan following the recent flooding.
The students raised more than $150 for the Red Cross relief fund. Included in the group was Abdul Tahir, a YES scholarship student from Pakistan, who was especially motivated to contribute to the cause.
"My country, it is suffering from a flood and it is getting more and more severe, and it is causing much of a disaster," says Tahir. "So many people out there. There are like 20 million victims. I'm here alone, far away from Pakistan. I need to help the people there."
