YOUR SUPPORT IS 
NEEDED IN LIBERIA

This is why I’m appealing to you today.

The MAF Liberia team have approached us for assistance to meet some of the program’s housing needs.

 As the youngest MAF program, they have been hard at work for over 4 years - but the staff compounds are still yet to be finished.

I am asking for your generous gift to help us reach the requested $160,000 needed to complete the building works in Liberia. Any additional funds received will go directly into the aid and development fund to assist the life-transforming flights.

It is extremely important work - at a time when Liberia is in desperate need of our support.

Thank you for your faithful partnership in this work.

In His service, 


Ian McDougall
CEO | MAF Australia


Your support today will help fund and complete desperately needed housing for the MAF staff to continue serving in Liberia.

It has been a hard few decades

Before the devastating Ebola outbreak brought Liberia to its knees in 2014, the horror of civil war wreaked havoc on an apocalyptic scale: 250,000 dead and 1 million displaced. An entire generation has grown up without adequate healthcare or education.

To give you an idea, there are currently 298 medical doctors responsible for the country’s 4.5 million population. Here in Australia, we have around 17,500 doctors for the same amount of people.

Isolation is a major problem ˅

Intense annual monsoon rainfalls cause erosion of rural roads, making access in or out of rural villages near impossible at certain times throughout the year. In some areas there are no drivable roads at all. In addition, 80% of the country’s airstrips were destroyed during the civil war.

Together, we can make an enormous difference ˅

We have forged partnerships with 168 humanitarian and mission organisations in Liberia, facilitating their work by air. We are working with the local government to rebuild the destroyed airstrips so that these communities can gain access to teachers, nurses, doctors and relief workers.

Why Liberia?

The MAF Liberia team have been hard at work over four years but the staff compounds are still yet to be finished.

Thank you for your generosity!

“It’s probably a bit cliché, but I absolutely love seeing the smiles on people’s faces when we go and deliver supplies! Being able to spend time with these guys that live their life out in the middle of nowhere… knowing we’re a lifeline to them, it’s just really exciting.”

Steven Biggs, MAF pilot in Uganda (soon to be serving in Liberia!)
