Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government approved on Friday a grant of 8 million HK dollars (about US$1.1 million) to earthquake-stricken Haiti.
Announcing the grant Friday, a government spokesman said that the committee hoped the grant would help provide relief to earthquake victims in Haiti.
"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.
