Grant approved for Guangxi flood victims in Mainland
    The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has approved from the Disaster Relief Fund a grant of $0.434 million to Amity Foundation, Hong Kong for providing relief to flood victims in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in the Mainland.

     Announcing the grant today (July 12), a spokesman for the Government said that the grant will be used to provide rice for the flood victims to address their imminent need. The grant was approved under the fast-track mechanism set up on the advice of the Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee to facilitate relief organisations to kick-start first-phase emergency relief work more expeditiously.    

     "To ensure that the money is used for the designated purposes, Amity Foundation, 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.
