MAF International is part of a worldwide not-for-profit team of aviation professionals providing air transport in places of deepest human need. For over 60 years MAF has flown over jungles, mountains, swamps and deserts to bring thousands of men, women and children medical care, emergency relief, educational materials, church and mission support and long-term community development. Drawing highly specialised staff from many nations as part of a worldwide Christian mission, MAF demonstrates the love and example of Christ as its staff provide vital air transport for people serving and living in isolated communities in around 30 countries. MAF's subsidised flights provide a lifeline for such communities when there is a medical emergency, but also for the regular transport of health workers and medical supplies, teachers, church leaders and relief and development workers. In some places, MAF's services are also used for transporting produce from communities to market and bringing in trade goods to enable micro-enterprise activity and social transformation. In Australia, MAF serves aboriginal people in Arnhem Land, where homeland communities are isolated by distance, sea or inadequate roads and MAF is often a community's only link with the outside world, providing them with access to people, transformational agencies and opportunities for their development and relief from poverty and hardship.
