Our deepest sympathies go out to the people of Nepal. A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.9 hit Nepal, causing mass devastation and loss of life. We are relieved to report Andrew Towne, YFU Alumnus to Germany and member of the YFU USA Board of Trustees, who is currently climbing Mt. Everest to raise funds for YFU, is safe and healthy. An update from Andrew’s father following a phone call they were able to have on Sunday along with a previous update from Andrew prior to the earthquake can be found on our blog.
