In today’s connected world, it is hard to imagine that some people are barely surviving in areas of complete isolation. No roads, shops, or telecommunication. It is even harder to imagine the dread of walking for days to the nearest clinic in the face of a medical crisis. Or the fear of looming violence with no way out. Many will not survive that desperate, life-threatening journey. Now imagine that you could reach them. Imagine that you could find a way where there is no way. Imagine that you could save a life by providing a plane.

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is the world’s largest humanitarian airline – flying to more destinations than the top three commercial airlines combined. MAF believes everyone should have access to life’s essentials, such as clean water, medical care and an education. Using aviation and technology, MAF delivers lifesaving supplies and personnel to some of the world’s most isolated communities. Schools are being successfully built in villages with no roads. Vaccines are being delivered to combat deadly diseases. Bush pilots are on call to evacuate patients in medical emergencies. For thousands of the world’s most vulnerable people, MAF is the only access to the outside world. It costs just £60 to fuel a life-saving medevac flight.

In 2018, MAF carried out 1,240 medical evacuations worldwide
