Tanzania

We began flying to Tanzania from Kenya in 1959. Later, co-founder Stuart King visited Tanzania, responding to Bishop Yohana Madinda’s request

In 1977, we began a permanent programme in Dodoma to meet the needs of missionaries. Today, our focus is on medical and evangelistic ‘safaris’. National and missionary staff fly to remote villages to provide medical care, including antenatal and mother-and-child checks, and one-to-one evangelism.

Thanks to these trips, isolated people can receive treatment and hear the Gospel.

Through God’s grace, huge improvements in infrastructure over the last ten years have made travel easier and safer. As a result, we receive fewer requests from our partners.

In 2014, after an extensive re-evaluation, it was decided that partner needs could best be served from a base in Arusha and through our work with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Mbeya.

I want to thank MAF for its long and faithful services to remote areas in Haydom and neighbouring regions. The services are important and greatly appreciated.
