Review for Fuel Relief Fund Inc, Riverside, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a volunteer with the Citizen Command Center Database. We have over 7000 facility records on the database of organizations who do wonderful things. I have to say I am most impressed with Fuel Relief Fund as they not only get the job done, but do it on short notice in the most cost effective way. When the earthquake hit near Japan, I would imagine that they were making plans before the first wave of Tsunami hit. He knows how to go to a disaster area and get the contacts and information he needs to be effective right away. I give this organization a five-star rating for sure.

Review for Fuel Relief Fund Inc, Riverside, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a volunteer who has focused on medical disaster relief after Hurricane Katrina and the Haiti earthquake working closely with the Citizen Command Center Database and the Haiti Epidemic Advisory System. I would like to give my wholehearted recommendation to anyone looking for an NGO to support for disaster relief. During the first months after the 2010 Haiti earthquake, I heard that there was a guy delivering free fuel in Haiti, I thought it was one of those too good to be true scenarios- probably hard to reach and with a lot of strings attached. Before spreading the word to the medical community in Haiti, I checked the offer out by calling the number given. I was shocked and delighted to get Ted Honcharik right away and find out it was indeed true. He is a down to earth no nonsense kind of guy. Many hospitals and clinics in Haiti reported back to me that they were so grateful to get this crucial support. Generators are the life blood of all facilities responding to disaster, yet this is the only non-profit NGO that does this work. Thanks and Kudos to Fuel Relief Fund.
