Review for Fuel Relief Fund Inc, Riverside, CA, USA
My name is Kesney Auguste. A week or so after the earthquake struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, I became in contact with the Fuel Relief Fund (FRF) organization. I met with the founder and CEO of the organization, Mr. Ted Honcharik through my sister, Ms. Kerline Tofuri, on their humanitarian trip to provide quick emergency relief to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. I was blown away to witness the steadfast efforts that Mr. Honcharik exhibited along with his profound compassion in doing all he could possibly can, in a relatively short period of time, to deliver his much needed help to the people of Haiti. Help which positively impacted the sick, the wounded, the hungry, the very young to the very old, as well as the security of the people of Haiti in a time of darkness. Darkness that FRF transformed to "light" through its delivery of free fuel, which was used to power up small, medium size to big generators. For two months straight, FRF proudly delivered free fuel to hundreds of poor families, police stations, churches, clinics, orphanages, hospitals, small to very big NGOs, and to several tents cities throughout Haiti. To this day, people from all walks of life in Haiti including government officials are still calling and writing to inquire when and if Fuel Relief Fund will return to support them once again or for a long time to come in Haiti. Judging from the quick and long lasting impact that FRF has had on the Haitian people, it is fair to claim that this organization is for real; its greater focus on changing the lives of the less fortunate speaks volume.
