Chad is Africa’s largest landlocked nation and one of its poorest. Frequent coup attempts as well as refugees from conflicts in the Central African Republic and Darfur in Sudan have exacerbated poverty for the country.
Only a small fraction of the country’s 40,000km of roads are paved, making overland travel time-consuming and dangerous.
Because MAF is there, our partners are able to spend more of their time meeting the needs of communities, and have peace of mind knowing that an evacuation to safety is possible in the event of political unrest or medical emergencies.
From their base in N’Djamena, MAF planes provide access to the remotest regions, supporting water and medical projects, mission outreaches, Bible translation, leadership training and development initiatives.
