Grant approved for hurricane victims in Haiti
     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 $0.521 million to Plan International Hong Kong for providing relief to hurricane victims in Haiti.
     Announcing the grant today (December 2), a spokesman for the Government said that the Committee hoped 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 hurricane victims in Haiti to $6.521 million.
     "To ensure that the money would be used for the designated purposes, Plan International Hong Kong will 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.
