Did you know that a one hour flight is equivalent to 3 days of travel on the ground? Imagine getting sick in a remote village and not having MAF there to help...
For those in remote or isolated communities a MAF flight is often the only way to get life-saving care.
MAF responds quickly and effectively to save lives and ease suffering caused by accidents, disease,disasters, deadly epidemics, and complications of childbirth. In many areas, the only way to reach a hospital or health clinic is aboard a small MAF plane.
Thousands are saved each year because MAF can transport doctors, nurses, and medicines to patients in minutes instead of days or weeks. Epidemics are prevented with vaccines and medical personnel transported by MAF.
MAF flights provide regular deliveries of personnel and supplies to medical facilities otherwise isolated by barriers of terrain. MAF communications networks advance healthcare by providing reliable voice and computer connections that allow remote facilities to access medical services and systems a world away.
