Fuel Relief Fund Providing Fuel in Leyte and Samar

Fuel Relief Fund is still operating out of service stations in Tabloban to service local and national NGO’s and help their operations along with providing fuel to typhoon survivors in towns and villages in Northern Leyte and Eastern Samar.

In the past several days, Fuel Relief fund has expanded operations and is involved in helping and reaching many citizens with aid by way of fueling many non-profit aid agencies. This is an important partnership as the fuel that is provided for the generators, refrigeration and cooking equipment, trucks, transportation vehicles, bull dozers, and other equipment helps those aid organizations provide essential services to the typhoon survivors.  Fuel Relief Fund participates in daily “cluster meetings” with these agencies.  As a result, Fuel Relief Fund has been supplying fuel for clinics, hospitals, water treatment plans, communication tower, and many aid vehicles. 

Fuel Relief Fund has expanded operations to deliver fuel to more towns and villages where the fuel is given to individuals and families for use in their generators and vehicles.  Many people are using motorcycles as their main or only way of transportation.  Yesterday, Fuel Relief Fund fueled over 600 motorcycles.  Additionally, there are many villages where the citizens have no transportation available at all.  Any aid needs to be delivered and Fuel Relief
Fund is delivering to many towns up to 4 hours radius away from Tacloban.

Fuel Relief Fund appreciates the support of GlobalGiving and all of the donors and contributors to this project. 

Fuel Relief Fund is a global, non-profit organization providing free fuel immediately after a major disaster.
It has responded to incidents including Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, Japan’s earthquake and tsunami disaster, the major earthquake in Turkey, and Hurricane Sandy.

Fuel Relief Fund Providing Critically Needed Fuel

Fuel Relief Fund is still operating out of service stations in Tabloban to service local and national NGO’s and help their operations along with providing fuel to individuals and families in that area.  

Yesterday, after fueling the water treatment plant in Tacloban, Fuel Relief Fund provided much needed fuel to Guiuan, Eastern Samar (about 3 hours from Tacloban).  This area was hardest hit by the storm and has been unreachable by land until now. The UN asked Fuel Relief Fund to go to Guiuan to fuel the generators for water purification.  The team reached the village and fueled overnight.  They fueled more today and then returned to camp in Tacloban.

Starting today, the Red Cross is setting up portable water treatment plants to produce drinking water all along the coast line for all the small towns.  Fuel Relief Fund is fueling the generators that will consume about 20 liters a day.  FRF will provide additional drums of fuel that will provide enough fuel for each water plant for a month!  Additionally, FRF will provide 10 liters of diesel for all cars and generators along the way to serve these communities and people as best as possible.

Fuel Relief Fund expands mobile operations in Philippines

Fuel Relief Fund has been busy setting up multiple areas for fuel distribution.  Fuel Relief Fund has been operating for several days out of two Petron service stations in Tacloban City,  One station has been mostly servicing other
NGO’s, or non-government organizations, local police and services, and United Nations agencies.  It is critical to
provide the fuel to keep the generators, lights, equipment, and vehicles of these aid relief agencies so that they can deliver and administer their unique and important services to the Filipino people.  The second station has mainly been open to service individuals and families that need fuel for vehicles and generators.  Fuel Relief Fund is providing both gas and diesel to those in need.

The Fuel Relief Fund team has also begun mobile operations in the past few days to get out into the surrounding communities in Northern Leyte where the citizens have not been able to travel the few hours to Tacloban
to receive any aid.  Locations include the fishing village of Carigara, the inland village of Alangalang, and others.  The area will be expanded over the next few days.

The fuel that Fuel Relief Fund is providing to other aid organizations is important to the work that is being done in Tacloban City and to allow these organizations to fuel vehicles and mobile generators so that they can begin to travel into the outlying communities and provide aid, food, medical attention, and other services for the people in these towns and villages. Fuel Relief is working with the UN, Red Cross, UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, and many organizations from several different countries.

Fuel Relief Fund appreciates the support of Global Giving and all of the donors and contributors to this project. Thousands of people are receiving fuel and additional aid and comfort as a result.

In the aftermath and destruction of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the Fuel Relief Fund deployed to Tacloban City, capitol city of the Philippine province Leyte.  Fuel Relief Fund has been providing gas and diesel to aid individuals, other non-profit non-government organizations, medical groups, the United Nations and affiliated agencies, local police department, etc. for use in generators and vehicles.

The Fuel Relief Fund team is mainly operating out of a couple of Petron service stations where Fuel Relief Fund began giving fuel to the government and non-government organizations so that they could begin and continue their operations and aid to the local people in need.  Next, the fueling was concentrated to the citizens of the local community.  Fuel Relief Fund is in the process of finalizing logistics to begin mobile operations in order to expand the area of relief, which should be in the next few days.

Fuel is an important and critical need after any disaster such as Super Typhoon Haiyan.  The fuel that is provided to individuals and organizations is used to power generators, vehicles, and other equipment needed to provide essential aid to those affected by the natural disaster.

Fuel Relief Fund is a global, non-profit organization providing free fuel immediately after a major disaster.  It has  responded to incidents including Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, Japan’s earthquake and tsunami
disaster, the major earthquake in Turkey, and Hurricane Sandy.
