* This donation is tax deductible
Why are some donations tax deductible and others not?
Gifts or sponsorship to support the relief work of MAF International (ABN 32 004 260 860) in Australia, made through the MAF Aid Fund (ABN 49 498 842 455), are tax deductible.
Not tax deductible
Tax deductibility on donations is only allowable by the Australian Tax Office in respect of approved relief and development activities. For this reason, tax deductibility is not available for sponsorship of staff working for ACMA (Australian Centre for Mission Aviation), CRMF, MAF Canada, MAF USA and MAF Australia (Sydney), nor for support of evangelistic outreach and other non-qualifying activities. Donations to CRMF are treated as 'non-development' and do not qualify for tax deductibility.
Silke and Daniel share an appreciation for all cultures and languages and have a passion for living in remote and exotic places.
After joining MAF in 2005 they have served in Arnhem Land, Mareeba, Madagascar and now Kenya. Daniel began his career as a Base Pilot situated in Arnhem Land, and progressed to Base Manager, Check and Training Pilot and Operations Manager.
After 8 years of flying, Daniel relocated to Mareeba and began an Avionics apprenticeship with MAF, which he completed in 2018. He currently works in the MAF Kenya Program, alongside Kenyan Nationals maintaining a fleet of nine aircraft.
Silke enjoys building relationships with the local Kenyan people in the place they call home and has been active in the field of Indigenous Culture, Agriculture, Veterinary services and Community Safety. Currently, Silke uses her skills and knowledge surrounding permaculture to educate and improve the quality of life for both the staff and children at a street children’s rehab centre.
