The Hong Kong government Thursday approved two grants totaling 600,000 HK dollars to help relieve earthquake victims in China's Qinghai Province.

A government spokesman said Thursday that the Disaster Relief Fund Advisory Committee hoped the two grants -- one of 300,000 HK dollars to ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) China and another of 300,000 HK dollars to Save the Children Hong Kong, would help provide relief to earthquake victims in Qinghai.

The grants are further to a disbursement of 116.74 million HK dollars made earlier for the government authorities of Qinghai Province, The Amity Foundation, The Salvation Army and World Vision Hong Kong to provide emergency relief to victims of the earthquake in Yushu, Qinghai. It takes the total value of grants for earthquake victims on the Mainland to 117.34 million HK dollars.

"To ensure that the money will be used for the designated purposes, the two relief agencies have been asked to submit evaluation reports and audited accounts on the use of the grants after the relief projects have been completed," the spokesman said. (7.8 HK dollars = 1 U.S. dollar)
