     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 million to World Vision Hong Kong for providing relief to hurricane victims in Haiti.
     Announcing the grant today (November 2), a spokesman for the Government said that the Committee hoped the grant would facilitate the provision of timely relief to the victims and help them restore their normal living.  
     "To ensure that the money is used for the designated purposes, World Vision Hong Kong 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.
