Why MAF?

There are no roads, no Doctors, and no 911.

The help you need is blocked by raging rivers, vast deserts, or insurmountable mountains.

If you or someone you love is sick or injured, and the nearest hospital is a 3-day walk away, you’re thankful for MAF; and a 10-minute flight that can mean the difference between life and death.

MAF airplanes help bring the love of God in tangible ways to thousands of isolated communities around the world.

What we do and why we do it

In fact, we believe it so much, that in 2019 alone, MAF…

How MAF helps…

In addition to providing emergency medevac flights, MAF works to provide isolated communities with access to healthcare through our flying doctor services. We also help stem the tide of disease and sickness by distributing mosquito netting and vaccines.

Because we believe that every individual is important to God. We work with local pastors, missionaries, and missions groups to deliver the Good News of God’s love for them in word and deed; helping to provide hope and healing for both body and soul.

MAF works with hundreds of partner organizations in dozens of countries around the world to bring immediate help when natural disasters, famines, or droughts strikes and communities and people are cut off from the help they need.

It all starts with sanitation and access to clean water. Without it community development can’t begin as crops fail, livestock become ill, and people die. MAF works with agencies and community leaders to improve the lives of people by helping to provide access to this most essential and critical thing.

MAF delivers vaccines that protect children against preventable killer childhood diseases and other illnesses. The speed and efficiency of MAF aircraft allows this precious cargo to reach remote villages in hours instead of days, ensuring that the “cold chain” is not broken and vaccinations remain effective.

In many developing countries where MAF operates, a pregnant woman may walk several days in the hopes of seeing a doctor. This at a time when she and her unborn child are most vulnerable. MAF helps bridge the gap between those in need and the doctors, nurses, and midwives who are able to help.
