On January 12, 2010, a devastating earthquake stuck Haiti, leaving the entire country without power. Within two days, the Fuel Relief Fund team flew into the Dominican Republic. They crossed the border into Haiti and secured a small tanker truck.
The conditions in Haiti were dismal and dangerous. Thousands of families were displaced and were living in tent cities without light. Fueled with diesel, the team provided fuel to light up tent cities and power up generators for police stations, hospitals, medical clinics, and orphanages. The team stayed in Haiti to continue their fuel donation efforts for more than two months.
