MAF Vaccine Flights

MAF flights deliver vaccines that help
combat disease including Covid-19

Even during a time of quarantine and other restrictions, MAF continues to play a critical role in reaching isolated and remote communities around the world where needs are great and access is limited.

For example, in the past 12 months alone, MAF flew over 100 flights in South Sudan to assist a single partner’s work among communities devastated by flooding and disease – including a deadly measles outbreak. MAF flights helped see 18,000 children vaccinated – potentially saving thousands of lives while also preventing the spread among other communities in the region.

Similar flights are repeated regularly in countries like Tanzania and Angola, where cold-chain transportation of vaccines – similar to what’s needed for the distribution of the Covid-19 vaccines – is essential and unavailable by any other means.

Will you help keep these life-lines of help open with your MAF medical flights gift today?
