MAF has the privilege of supporting the work of Friendship’s three floating hospitals in Bangladesh.

For the 'char dwellers' who live along the river, the only way they can receive medical treatment is through Friendship’s floating hospitals.

MAF’s amphibious Cessna Caravan aircraft enables doctors, medical supplies and personnel to reach the hospitals safely in areas where roads are unusable or non-existent.

MD Somej Uddin, an 80-year-old man who had problems with his left eye, was one of those who benefitted from our partnership with Friendship.

Although he had originally been neglected by his sons and daughter, the removal of a cataract means he can now see and enjoy everything around him.

Taniya, a 14-year-old who received horrendous burns on her neck and throat when an electric cable fell on her, was operated on by one of Fellowship’s surgeons, and can now blink, eat, move and play again. Taniya, who is no longer an outcast, is delighted.

Stories like these show how important MAF’s work is. Without our flights, wonderful ministries such as Friendship wouldn’t be able to bring health and healing to those who need it most. Doing something to alleviate the pain of the ill and the injured is so rewarding!
