Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
For 75 years MAF has been flying light aircraft to some of the world’s most remote areas, enabling partners to deliver vital medical care, emergency relief, and Christian hope to thousands of communities worldwide. Our vision is to see 'isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ's name.' We use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.
The support of the Souter Charitable Trust has enabled MAF to build an airstrip in a remote region of Myanmar which will allow us to continue to fulfil our mission. The airstrip, will provide easier all-year-round access to this isolated area, rather than expose travelers to the lengthy and often hazardous overland journey. Consequently, this will lead to accelerated socio-economic development of the region, as well as allowing these communities to better connect with the rest of Myanmar. On completion, this airstrip will allow approximately 40,000 people to benefit from life -saving services.
At MAF, we believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are.
