Angola is a country that is devastated by war and unrest. With almost no road access to many parts of the country, the Angola people struggle to thrive in communities that are isolated and neglected. Our vision is to see the MAF Business Club come alongside one of the most isolated regions within Angola to help support the life-saving, life-changing work that MAF is bringing to isolated communities. This Business Club will “Change the Ending” of thousands of people’s stories in eastern Angola.
It is in the farthest and most remote regions that the Angola Civil War was waged, and the land and people still bear the scars of this conflict. In most of rural Angola, there is little to no access to healthcare, almost no sustained community development, there are nearly no roads, the land is covered in landmines, and now drought has created food and water shortages.
MAF has been actively working in Angola for over 30 years, but there is still so much more work to do and we need your help.
In a single year of operation in the Angola province of Cuando Cubango for example, MAF helped bring HALO Trust in this community to remove the landmines hidden beneath the ground and we have enabled 36 church ministry training meetings with more than 3000 future church leaders in attendance so that the gospel can take hold. Nearly 500 people have regained their sight through mobile cataract surgery and nearly 600 patients were treated for diseases that are often preventable in Canada.
We flew critically ill patients to the hospital and supported women’s health initiatives to combat the shame and stigma attached to fistula patients. The blind receive sight, the sick are healed, and those who do not know Jesus are being reached.
God is changing the ending for people in Cuando Cubango through MAF and now we want to see this work mirrored in other parts of rural Angola.
