Grant approved for flood victims in Bihar, India
     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 $1.346 million to Hong Kong Red Cross for providing relief to flood victims in Bihar, India.

     Announcing the grant today (September 15), 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 the one approved earlier, will take the accumulative value of grants for flood victims in India to $4.836 million.

     "To ensure that the money would be used for the designated purposes, Hong Kong Red Cross 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.
