Established in 2005, Fuel Relief Fund,a non-profit 501(c)(3) developed a methodology accepted worldwide for providing fuel in the form of gasoline, diesel, heating oil, and coal after major natural disasters. FRF volunteers have responded to and been deployed to major disasters all over the world, such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Super storm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina in the United States, the earthquakes in Haiti and Turkey, and the tsunami in Japan.
Fuel saves lives. Immediately following any major natural disaster, fuel is listed as one of the primary resources needed to ensure aid relief. Fuel is needed in order to obtain and/or transport medicine, food, clean water, and shelter. FRF volunteers immediately locate the area in need, and participate in meetings with humanitarian aid and governmental agencies to coordinate services. In this cooperative manner FRF prioritizes what type of fuel is most needed, for what purpose and to whom to deliver to first.
The FRFteam locates fuel and transportation for this fuelfrom the closest sources possible. We are assisted logistically by FRF disaster deployment operations in the United States and abroad. Upon securing fuel resources and delivery methods, FRF volunteers begin distributing fuel immediately.
