Grant approved for cyclone victims in Sri Lanka

     The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has accepted the advice of the Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee and approved from the Disaster Relief Fund a grant of $2.263 million to Save the Children Hong Kong for providing relief to cyclone victims in Sri Lanka.

     Announcing the grant today (July 5), a spokesman for the Government said that the Committee hoped that the grant would facilitate the provision of timely relief to the victims and help them restore their normal living. The grant, together with the one approved earlier, will take the accumulative value of grants for cyclone victims in Sri Lanka to $3.451 million.

     "To ensure that the money would be used for the designated purposes, Save the Children Hong Kong would be asked to submit an evaluation report and an audited account on the use of the grant after the relief project has been completed," the spokesman said.
