Ryan & Anna Cuthel
Serving in Kenya, Africa
* 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.
Ryan and Anna, together with their three boys, Luka, Samuel and Benjamin, serve with Mission Aviation Fellowship in Kenya.
Ryan is Country Director and oversees MAF’s work serving isolated communities in both Kenya and war-torn South Sudan.
Ryan and Anna first moved to Nairobi as newlyweds with MAF in 2005, with Ryan serving as a pilot and in training and management roles. Anna, an occupational therapist, worked in several African countries establishing national treatment programs for babies born with clubfoot.
After six years in Africa, Ryan and Anna returned to Australia in 2012 where Ryan flew for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. This time of reconnection and refreshment laid the foundation for a return to Kenya in 2016. As Ryan leads MAF-Kenya, Anna continues her long-term work with I Afrika, a local street kids rehabilitation organisation.
And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.Micah 6:8
