MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship)

About MAF

We believe every community, however remote, should have the essentials for life. Our vision is to see 'isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ's name.'

Imagine if your community had no roads and little access to the outside world. How would you or your family reach a doctor if you're sick or injured? How can you receive an education or job opportunities?

This is the reality for millions of people.

 

 

 

 

Jungles, mountains, swamps, insecurity and a dilapidated infrastructure are all barriers to receiving physical and spiritual care and a hope for the future. We are Mission Aviation Fellowship - or MAF - a Christian mission organisation that uses planes to overcome these barriers. Our pilots and personnel deliver relief workers, doctors, pastors, school books, food, medicines - everything that can only be safely and speedily delivered by air. Our supporters give and pray to make this all possible. With an MAF plane taking off or landing every three minutes, the need is huge.

We fly medical, relief and life-transforming help to vulnerable people in hard-to-reach places Mountains. Jungles. Swamps. Unrest. No roads. We overcome these barriers to help overcome poverty. Millions of people cannot access basic medical care, clean water, schools or receive the Good News of Godís love, simply because itís too dangerous or time-consuming to reach them. We provide flights for 1,500 aid, development and mission organisations to enable them to transform lives. Itís a great partnership - and you help make it possible. From our pilots on mountain airstrips to prayer supporters here in the UK, together we are achieving incredible stories of adventure, hope and transformation at the ends of the earth. We help vulnerable people in hard-to-reach places, but we couldnít do it without you

In today's 'connected world', the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Flying onto desert and jungle airstrips, lakes and rivers, tracks and roads, MAFís light aircraft and their mission pilots go the extra miles to provide a lifeline. Working in partnership with hundreds of other Christian and relief organisations MAF enables practical help, physical healing, and spiritual hope to be delivered to many of the most remote and inaccessible communities on the planet.

For 70 years, MAF has been flying for life.
