     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 $1.909 million to the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, China (ADRA China) for providing relief to cyclone victims in Bangladesh.
     Announcing the grant today (June 26), a spokesman for the Government said that the grant will be used to provide emergency shelter materials and tools. The Committee hopes the grant will facilitate the provision of timely relief for the victims and help them restore their normal living.
     "To ensure that the money is used for the designated purposes, ADRA China 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.
