PNG Earthquake: An Update
On February 26th 2018, a 7.5 earthquake hit PNG and since that time, MAF has been serving those impacted in the remote areas. MAF has received donations from individuals and businesses in PNG and around the world, in addition to funding from New Zealand Aid, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, and Barrick New Guinea Limited. This has allowed us to subsidise flights so aid organisations like World Vision and Care International, UNICEF, WFP and other groups, and individuals wanting to assist the people in the remote areas could get teams and supplies in more affordably. Our aircraft have flown in building supplies, food supplies, seeds and tools for replanting, water tanks and toilets, clothing and many other items.
