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 $4.006 million to Save the Children Hong Kong for providing relief to flood victims in Hubei Province in the Mainland.

     Announcing the grant today (August 11), 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 $16.760 million.

     "To ensure that the money would be used for the designated purposes, Save the Children 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.
