19:29, December 30, 2011

HONG KONG, Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- Hong Kong has approved a grant of 2 million HK dollars (about 257,000 U.S. dollars) for a relief project for typhoon victims in the Philippines.

Announcing the grant Friday, a government spokesman said that Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee hoped the grant would help provide relief to the typhoon victims in the Philippines.

"To ensure that the money will be used for the designated purposes, the relief agency has been asked to submit an evaluation report and audited account on the use of the grant after the relief project has been completed," the spokesman said.

Hong Kong Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee is responsible for advising the government on policy and practices regarding the disbursement of funding for disaster relief from the Disaster Relief Fund, as well as advising on specific amounts to specific recipients, and monitoring the use of grants.
