Grants approved for flood victims in southern Mainland
     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 two grants totalling $6 million to two agencies for providing relief to flood victims in southern Mainland.

     Announcing the grants today (July 29), a spokesman for the Government said that the Committee hoped that the two grants - one of $5 million to World Vision Hong Kong and one of $1 million to Oxfam Hong Kong - would facilitate the provision of timely relief to the flood victims in southern Mainland including Guizhou, Hunan, Hubei and Anhui Provinces, and help them restore their normal living. The grants, together with the one approved earlier, will take the accumulative value of grants for flood victims in southern Mainland to $6.445 million.
     “To ensure that the money will be used for the designated purposes, World Vision Hong Kong and Oxfam Hong Kong will be asked to submit evaluation reports and audited accounts on the use of the grants after the relief projects have been completed,” the spokesman said.
