When the tsunami struck Japan, the Fuel Relief Fund team immediately reacted. At the scene, the team witnessed absolute destruction. Huge piles of rubble were everywhere – remnants of homes, walls, roofs, mattresses, toys, furniture, and photos were scattered as far as the eye could see. Survivors were left without power. Temperatures were below freezing and many families stood in line with their small children for hours to receive heating oil. The team was overwhelmed by how appreciative, polite, and patient the Japanese were as they waited in the cold to receive just 2.5 gallons of kerosene.
