NEPAL Tinian Society Inc. has raised a total of $11,033.56 that will be donated to families affected by the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that struck the south Asian nation on April 25, 2015.

Bal Krishna Thapa Magar, founder and president of Nepal Tinian Society said their group is a social organization that aims to provide aid and help to its members and friends.

Magar said they sought donations from the business community and private individuals on Tinian to help the victims of the earthquake which has killed more than 8,800, injured more than 23,000, and caused unimaginable loss of property among the people of Nepal.
