Grant 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 a grant of $6.309 million to Amity Foundation, Hong Kong for providing relief to flood victims in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Hunan Province, Anhui Province and Yunnan Province in the Mainland.

     Announcing the grant today (August 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 those approved earlier, will take the accumulative value of grants for flood victims in the southern Mainland to $12.754 million.

     "To ensure that the money would be 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.
