Nonprofit Remote Digest - Issue #430
In the aftermath of a disaster, fuel is a crucial, life-saving resource that enables first responders and aid workers to undertake search and rescue operations, provide emergency medical services and shelter, deliver food and water, heat camps, power equipment and ensure light source.
Fuel Relief Fund has partnered with the United Nations World Food Programme to provide essential fuel supply chain management support...
