The help you need is blocked by raging rivers, vast deserts, or insurmountable mountains.
How would you get the help you need?
What would you do?
If you or someone you love is sick or injured, and the nearest hospital is a 3-day walk across mountains, rivers, or vast deserts, you’re thankful for MAF; and a 10-minute flight that can mean the difference between life and death.
MAF provides countless individuals in thousands of isolated communities around the world with the means to provide a better life for themselves and their families.
But for us, it’s more than just providing practical help in times of need. We’re serious about fulfilling the Great Commission. In fact, it’s at the very core of who we are.
Sharing God’s love through aviation and technology.
Isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.
We go where others can’t or won’t.
Real “uttermost parts of the earth” stuff.
We do it because we believe that no one is beyond the reach of God’s love.
In fact, we believe it so much,
that in 2016 alone, MAF…

Any opportunity indigenous kids are given to kick or run with a ball, they respond to it, often with beaming smiles. Education is something that MAF values, so MAF does what is possible to make these types of flights a priority.

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.
When disaster strikes and people are cut off from the help they need. When communities are devastated by famine or drought. MAF works with hundreds of partner organizations to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of thousands of communities in over 30 of the world’s poorest countries.
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 to remote areas, protecting children against polio, diphtheria, measles, 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.
