Grant approved for cyclone victims in the Philippines
     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 $1.196 million to the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, China (ADRA China) for providing relief to cyclone victims in the Philippines.

     Announcing the grant today (March 16), a spokesman for the Government said that the grant will be used to provide kitchenware to victims who have yet to receive sufficient assistance due to poor communication network and road blockage. The Committee hopes the grant will help the victims restore their normal living.

     "To ensure that the money is used for the designated purposes, ADRA China 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.
