Rebuilding Ecuador with Fuel Relief

by Fuel Relief Fund
Vetted

Summary

Tens of thousands of people are still without regular fuel delivery systems, especially in the most rural areas where FRF was working after the initial disaster. FRF will send a team to first provide initial relief to the vulnerable people still in need within the hardest-hit communities in Ecuador, supporting the recovery with fuel tank deliveries. We will also work hand in hand with the local government to identify needs in creating solutions to resume fuel delivery to affected areas.

Challenge

Fragile livelihoods, local roads and vehicles part of the delivery infrastructure were destroyed in the earthquake. Thousands of people who lack transportation options are still without a fuel source, with a number of communities left struggling to recover. Those individuals lack a sustainable source to cook and boil water, increasing their risk to water-borne diseases, and raising risks to health and security particularly in vulnerable groups (women, children, elderly).

Solution

FRF will send a team to first provide initial relief to the vulnerable people still in need within the hardest-hit communities in Ecuador, supporting the recovery with fuel tank deliveries. We will also work hand in hand with the local government to identify needs in creating both an immediate and a long term sustainable solution to resuming fuel deliveries to the local area. Those include repairing roads, for which FRF will gift free fuel for vehicles and expertise.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide free fuel to affected individuals, families and communities to provide for their basic survival needs, enabling them to recover income-generating activities in the long-term. We also will help to build capacity and establish supply systems for community sustainability going forward to source fuel locally as they rebuild and prepare for future emergencies that may disrupt the supply chain.
