Challenge

Super Typhoon Haiyan is the most powerful storm ever to make landfall. It has hit the Philippines with winds of nearly 200 MPH. Philippine authorities have warned that 12 million people are at risk. People will be without power, electricity, and have a disruption in fuel supply. Fuel is needed to fuel generators and vehicles for clinics, medical and aid organizations, service providers, and individual victims of the storm.

Solution

Fuel Relief Fund is a non-profit charitable organization that provides free fuel immediately after a major disaster. We are currently deploying to the Tacloban, the capitol of Leyte, a province of the Philippines to provide free fuel for those in need. Primarily, the gas and diesel will be given to individuals, other non-profit agencies, clinics, medical groups, etc. for use in generators and vehicles. 100% of funds raised for the relief effort is used to purchase fuel.

Long-Term Impact

Fuel Relief Funds provides free fuel immediately following a large scale natural disaster until the fuel supply can be restored.
