Dear Friends of Fuel Relief Fund,

Just a week ago our organization received very exciting news. Global Giving has assisted Fuel Relief Fund with an extremely generous donation to provide disaster relief in Turkey.

The people of Turkey have been suffering after the devastating earthquake that collapsed many buildings in Van and Ercis, leaving thousands homeless and struggling as temperatures drop below freezing. As you are all well aware three things are desperately needed there: food, water, and shelter. In the aftermath of this earthquake fuel has become the fourth necessity. It will be needed to provide heat, run generators or for transportation of people, supplies and equipment.

On November 9th, we deployed two volunteers Van, Turkey. Members of Lions Club International have helped us tremendously by putting us in touch with people in Turkey who will assist us in distributing this gift. Please check our website and our Facebook page for updates on this latest relief effort. We will do our best to keep you informed of our volunteers' progress.

If you have any questions please feel free to call Kris Salas (909) 322-1481 or Ted Honcharik at (951) 233-0283.

Thanks so much,

Kris Salas
