Challenge

Hurricane Florence has stalled over the eastern coast of the US and is currently wreaking havoc on the the Carolinas. As we witnessed with Hurricane Maria, fuel is a crucial resource in times of crisis. In the days and weeks to come, prices across the region will continue to rise as supply dwindles, and more people will be in desperate need of fuel.

Solution

FRF has responders on the ground working around the clock to transport and distribute free fuel to those who need it most. This project will support our efforts to bring fuel to survivors so they can charge phones to locate family, drive cars to buy supplies, run generators and power home medical devices. As long as we have the resources and a need exists, FRF will provide fuel to civilians, first responders, hospitals, nursing homes -- anyone and everyone adversely impacted by this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

FRF fills the fuel supply gap in the immediate aftermath of a disaster when urgent humanitarian activities occur. We help civilians, first responders, and critical infrastructure manage their fuel needs until the fuel supply chain is back up and running. Fuel saves lives - help us work to prevent the catastrophic consequences of fuel shortages that we've seen in other disasters.
