Grant approved for flood victims in Assam, 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 $1.463 million to Plan International Hong Kong for providing relief to flood victims in Assam, India.
     Announcing the grant today (August 22), a spokesman for the Government said that the grant will be used to provide hygiene and household items. The Committee hopes the grant will 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 $5.378 million.
     "To ensure that the money is used for the designated purposes, Plan International 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.
