Nepal Earthquake Emergency
The devastating earthquake in Nepal has left thousands of people in need of urgent relief. Please give to help MAF reach those most vulnerable.
The devastating 7.8 earthquake in Nepal 10 days ago has affected millions of people. Many live in communities are in isolated or hard-to-reach places. MAF is in Nepal providing urgent logistical and air support to speed life-saving relief to those most vulnerable.
Please help us save lives. Give today.
What are we doing?
Our pilots and logistical experts are co-ordinating flights to bring relief to hard-to-reach areas inaccessible by road. The helicopters are carrying medical personnel, relief workers and vital supplies to reach the most vulnerable communities. Women and children make up a large percentage of these villages.
We are working in close partnership with groups including the UK's Department for International Development (DFID) and the Nepali Government.
Recent flights include:
•rescuing British nationals stranded at the monastery at Serang Gompa
•several search-and-rescue flights on behalf of DFID to various locations
•a surgical team flown to a remote village to carry out urgent operations
We are also providing logistical support at the airport to help increase the effectiveness of the international relief effort. This includes ramp management, cargo handling, warehousing logistics and co-ordination.
