MAF is a Christian charity, operating light aircraft in order to reach some of the most remote people groups in the world to see them physically and spiritually transformed. They fly in medical aid, doctors, teachers, aid workers, Christian teachers, pastors and evangelists, and even UN and government staff. Their remit is to reach the places that would take hours, or even days, to reach in other ways.
The work of MAF was actually started 73 years ago, just after the second world war, when a group of pilots decided they wanted to use the skills they had developed for good rather than destruction. After a long period of surveying Africa and raising funds, those early MAF pioneers were able to buy one aircraft to start operating in the Sudan. Today there are close to 150 aircraft, operating in 26 countries all around the globe, working with more than 1,500 partner organisations to bring help and healing, both physically and spiritually, in many developing nations. The plane is a real tool to reach people who otherwise simply could not be reached with the gospel message.
