MAF uses planes to transform the lives of the world's most isolated people in need.

Discover how we help

We enable thousands of aid, relief and mission projects in really remote places. Because that's where some of the greatest human needs are.

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, MAF’s 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.

Spend more time with God this Lent

Life in the 21st Century often feels full of distractions. There always seems so much to do that, sometimes, we might fail to spend much time with God at all. So this Lent, we invite you to join us as we encourage one another through weekly devotions, daily prayer ideas and messages of encouragement.

'I wouldn't have survived if it hadn't been for MAF'

'I wouldn't have survived if it hadn't been for MAF'

On 4 December, MAF had the honour of flying Maud Kells back to the village of Mulita, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where she was the victim of a shooting attack in January 2015. Less than a year after the MAF medical evacuation flight that saved her life, she returned to a joyful celebration.
