Kaohsiung, July 2 (CNA) A group of Chinese exchange students donated NT$10,000 201507020037t0001(US$323.7) to a public fund Thursday for helping victims suffering from burns sustained from a color powder blast last weekend in northern Taiwan.

The students from Fujian Normal University cut back on their budget for a dinner party meant to thank the faculty members of Fortune Institute of Technology in Kaohsiung for making the year-long exchange program a success.

Instead of holding the party at a luxury restaurant, it was moved to a less expensive one at Liuho Night Market, saving NT$10,000 to make the donation.
