MAF Pilot Brad Venter was preparing for a a full day's program when he was alerted to a medevac need in Goroka, PNG. A women  retained placenta after giving birth and was in critical need of medical attention. 

On landing, the people in the village brought her to the aircraft on a well-made bamboo stretcher. While I loaded her into the aircraft, Sarah was able to do another airstrip survey.

Rest of story if we think it appropriate.

This is fast becoming an urgent need for the team in PNG. The old systems in the two aircraft are increasingly obsolete and are a source of significant challenges in maintenance and certification.

We urgently need to raise at least $150,000AUD, which is the cost required to refurbish one aircraft. 

Your tax-deductible gift today will help us continue reaching remote communities in PNG with medical care, emergency aid, critical resources and Christian hope.

HELP FUND EMERGENCY
MEDEVAC FLIGHTS IN TIMOR-LESTE

GIVE TODAY

Since 1973, MAF has served the remote homelands and communities of Arnhem Land by flying in life essentials like food, medical care and emergency services. 

To continue serving these remote communities effectively, the MAF team in Mareeba require an additional aircraft to join their fleet.

In order to be able to transfer an existing MAF aircraft - the youngest GippsAero GA8 in the MAF fleet - and ready it for service in Arnhem Land, a number of modifications to the aircraft need to be made. 

Performing maintenance work on an existing aircraft is a far more cost-effective way to solve the fleet needs than acquiring new aircraft. But it still requires funding. The team in Mareeba have asked us to help raise AUD$260,000 to enable this transfer.

Your gift today - to help meet our technical need - will ultimately result in hope and life coming to some of the most remote parts of Arnhem Land for many, many years to come!



REPRESENTATION ONLY

How did we end up here?

In 2003, the maintenance base moved from Ballarat to Mareeba to create much-needed efficiency. 

A temporary hangar was privately leased at Mareeba Aerodrome to help the team get started. 
It wasn’t an ideal space - but it would do until something more permanent was found. 

18 years later the team are still in that same hangar! 

We have long since outgrown it and it is impeding our ability to operate. As MAF Engineer Phil Snell puts it: “It is physically stopping us from doing the work that we need to do... it’s like a game of Tetris sometimes.” 


This picture shares the story of a medevac flight for a mother and her sick three-month-old baby in Timor-Leste. The child, suffering from bronchitis and breathing difficulties was in need of urgent medical care. The quick MAF flight replaced hours on foot - meaning that the mother and child were able to reach the hospital just in time. 

Your support today will help keep these life-saving flights in the air, making more stories like this possible. Thank you!

Sharing stories of

in Arnhem Land

Sarah-Jane and her young daughter live in a very remote community in East Arnhem Land. Weeks before her evacuation she was violently hit over the head with a hammer. She fled to her mother’s house in the same community, but of course, her husband knew where she was.

One night he turned up intoxicated, crossbow and arrow in hand, and threatened to kill their daughter. The police were called but being so remote, it would be 24 hours before they could arrive. The church community kept her safe until then, but they knew they had to get Sarah-Jane and her daughter out of the community urgently.

Miyalk Domestic and Family Violence Shelter - based in Nhulunbuy - contacted MAF. Because of your support, we were able to dispatch an aircraft and whisk them safely to the shelter where they could start their journey of recovery from domestic violence.
