With dense jungle, mountainous highlands and hazardous roads, the need for MAF in Papua New Guinea is great
Our work began in 1951 and, with the growth of a strong Papua New Guinea Church, has gone from supporting expatriate missionaries to meeting the aviation needs of local churches, schools, Bible colleges and church pastors.
Isolated communities rely on MAF to fly in medical staff, teachers, missionaries and Bible translators, as well as materials to build and equip schools, hospitals and Bible colleges.
We also fly local produce to market to encourage community development in remote areas and help people generate income.
Emergency flights save patients lengthy and potentially fatal overland travel.
MAF pilots carry a selection of print and audio Bibles to sell at affordable prices.
In 2013, our Christian Radio Missionary Fellowship sold 3,000 Bibles and Christian resources.
