MAF has been serving this region since 1950. Every year we fly hundreds of doctors, patients, aid workers and pastors, providing healthcare, aid redevelopment, education, food and clean water.
South Sudan has been in and out of war for the past 60 years. More than 2 million people have died in two long civil wars with the north.

MAF has been serving this region since 1950. Forced to leave for some years due to civil war, MAF now has a base in the capital of Juba. Every year we fly hundreds of doctors, patients, aid workers and pastors, providing healthcare, aid redevelopment, education, food and clean water.
In partnership with over 100 organisations, such as AIM International, Tearfund, Medair, Christian Mission Aid, Water Harvest International and Save the Children – to name just a few – we are proud to be part of bringing hope to a country that almost lost all hope.
