How MAF Helps….

medevacs

Medevac and
flying doctor services

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.

Evangelism

Evangelism and
missionary work

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.

Disaster relief

Disaster relief, emergency
flights, and refugee care

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.

Clean Water

Clean water and
community development

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.

Avada Admin

Vaccinations and
preventative care

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.

Midwifery

Infant, midwifery, and
postnatal care

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.

Immediate Needs: A Replacement Engine for our Caravan in Angola

In regions without passable roads, MAF can reduce a doctor’s all-day trek by foot to a mere 20-minute flight, or provide a single flight that can haul a half-ton of cargo into an area that would otherwise require a train of pack animals, several guides, and weeks of grueling effort to reach by land. When you are the only lifeline around, it’s critical that your aircraft are properly maintained. That’s why we place such a high standard on maintenance, making our aircraft among the safest and best maintained in the world.

We currently have over $199,000 but need the balance of $308,500 by the end of July in order to purchase, transport, and install this new engine so as to minimize the downtime and the impact on ministry flying that it will cause.

Our aircraft in Angola provide the only access to thousands of families who depend on remote and isolated rural health clinics.

While our two smaller 182’s are ideal for transporting clinic workers and doctors, they simply can’t carry the cargo needed to stock and resupply these remote clinics with life-saving medicines.

Despite our aggressive maintenance schedule, MAF’s Caravan in Angola will run out of engine calendar life as of August, 2016 at which time, it will be grounded. The cost of procuring, shipping, and installing a replacement engine is expected to be roughly $569,000 with the cost of the engine alone at $508,000.

Thank you for considering this need.
