In the Highlands, coffee is one of the main sources of income for remote communities, but only if they can get the fresh coffee beans to buyers in a city. It’s crucial, and for many communities like Dusin, MAF provides the only option: flying. On the 9th of November, pilots Captain Michael Duncalf and First Officer-in-training Judith Dupuis flew six passengers and a load of food cargo to Dusin, a small community on a hill surrounded by mountains. The community was ready with a stack of 26 weighed and marked coffee bags. Village men worked quickly to unload the plane and load up the 40 to 50 kilo bags of coffee while a crowd watched from behind a wood and wire fence. It’s a routine flight for MAF, yet vitally important to the community.

Their first visit was approximately 12 years ago to this tribe that had very little contact with the outside world, a small tribe of about 120  that was slowly dying. Some of the older ones from the tribe have found peace through Jesus for the killing and other terrible things that have haunted their sleep.

CCC girls are evacuated to Juba with pilot Eivind Lindthørn.CCC (Confident Children out of Conflict) needed 20 orphans evacuated from a town southwest of Juba where nightly violence  was putting the girls and a few boys in jeopardy.

The hard work was rewarding as the girls arrived back in Juba to the CCC compound to shouts of joy from their "sisters".

Record breaking turn-around time

‘Confident Children out of Conflict’ is an organisation that houses orphans on the compound next to MAF’s. They approached MAF to evacuate some of the children they’d placed in a nearby town.

Medair vaccinator James vaccinating a child against measles in Aweil North.A few quotes of James are availabe on the e-library.Medair responded to measles outbreak in Aweil North County, Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] in South Sudan. An alarming number of children have died from suspected measles and local clinics report confirmed cases. We heard of communities that were burying children every day who had died of measles and other preventable diseases.Other factors such as food insecurity, drug shortages and long distances to walk to local health clinics add an extra weight to the critical situation. Mothers of children who were being vaccinated have mentioned they were struggling to find food to feed their families. According to a recent World Food Programme (WFP) report, 5.3 million people in South Sudan currently face severe food shortage, which is likely to lead to high levels of acute malnutrition. Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] is of particular concern in the report. Malnutrition severely compromises children‚s defence against infectious diseases such as measles, which can push them over the edge with life-threatening complications.
We were able to launch the measles campaign in less than a week. Just last week, more than 40 locally-recruited vaccination teams travelled village to village, all the way to the most remote communities, and vaccinated 48,471 children.‚Emergency Response Team
Emergencies are all too common in South Sudan. Frequent droughts, floods, and conflicts mean that the needs are constantly changing. Medair maintains the flexibility to provide short- or long-term emergency responses to help save lives and strengthen communities. With expertise in WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene), Health and Nutrition, and non-food item (NFI) distribution, our emergency response teams (ERTs) provide swift relief for hundreds of thousands of people across the country each year.Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene Promotion

Prior to this, many mothers walked 3 to 4 hours, often carrying a baby in a basket on her head, plus one on her back.

CCC girls are evacuated to Juba with pilot Eivind Lindthørn.CCC (Confident Children out of Conflict) needed 20 orphans evacuated from a town southwest of Juba where nightly violence  was putting the girls and a few boys in jeopardy. MAF did 2 emergency flights at the end of an already long day of flying for pilot Eivind Lindtjørn. The hard work was rewarding as the girls arrived back in Juba to the CCC compound to shouts of joy from their "sisters".

Record breaking turn-around time

‘Confident Children out of Conflict’ is an organisation that houses orphans on the compound next to MAF’s. They approached MAF to evacuate some of the children they’d placed in a nearby town. The team in Juba pulled out all the stops to make the evacuation possible, at the end of what had already been a full day…

Medair vaccinator James vaccinating a child against measles in Aweil North.A few quotes of James are availabe on the e-library.Medair responded to measles outbreak in Aweil North County, Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] in South Sudan. An alarming number of children have died from suspected measles and local clinics report confirmed cases. We heard of communities that were burying children every day who had died of measles and other preventable diseases.Other factors such as food insecurity, drug shortages and long distances to walk to local health clinics add an extra weight to the critical situation. Mothers of children who were being vaccinated have mentioned they were struggling to find food to feed their families. According to a recent World Food Programme (WFP) report, 5.3 million people in South Sudan currently face severe food shortage, which is likely to lead to high levels of acute malnutrition. Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] is of particular concern in the report. Malnutrition severely compromises children‚s defence against infectious diseases such as measles, which can push them over the edge with life-threatening complications.
We were able to launch the measles campaign in less than a week. Just last week, more than 40 locally-recruited vaccination teams travelled village to village, all the way to the most remote communities, and vaccinated 48,471 children.‚Emergency Response Team
Emergencies are all too common in South Sudan. Frequent droughts, floods, and conflicts mean that the needs are constantly changing. Medair maintains the flexibility to provide short- or long-term emergency responses to help save lives and strengthen communities.

Tearfund stores cartons of Plumpy'Nut and Plumpy'Sup in a stoage facility at the Pathai Nutrition Feeding Center.Tearfund works in Uror County, Jonglei State in South Sudan providing nutrition services at nine centers. In 2014, between April and December, Tearfund treated over 2600 severely malnourished children with Plumpy'Nut that MAF regularly flies in. Recently MAF flew building materials for three newly established centers with the goal that no woman should walk more than two hours to get help. Prior to this, many mothers walked 3 to 4 hours, often carrying a baby in a basket on her head, plus one on her back.

In the Highlands, coffee is one of the main sources of income for remote communities, but only if they can get the fresh coffee beans to buyers in a city. It’s crucial, and for many communities like Dusin, MAF provides the only option: flying. On the 9th of November, pilots Captain Michael Duncalf and First Officer-in-training Judith Dupuis flew six passengers and a load of food cargo to Dusin, a small community on a hill surrounded by mountains. The community was ready with a stack of 26 weighed and marked coffee bags. Village men worked quickly to unload the plane and load up the 40 to 50 kilo bags of coffee while a crowd watched from behind a wood and wire fence. It’s a routine flight for MAF, yet vitally important to the community.

In the Highlands, coffee is one of the main sources of income for remote communities, but only if they can get the fresh coffee beans to buyers in a city. It’s crucial, and for many communities like Dusin, MAF provides the only option: flying. On the 9th of November, pilots Captain Michael Duncalf and First Officer-in-training Judith Dupuis flew six passengers and a load of food cargo to Dusin, a small community on a hill surrounded by mountains. The community was ready with a stack of 26 weighed and marked coffee bags. Village men worked quickly to unload the plane and load up the 40 to 50 kilo bags of coffee while a crowd watched from behind a wood and wire fence. It’s a routine flight for MAF, yet vitally important to the community.

What do building materials, coffee and a saw mill have in common?

The group spent a few days in Niksek on the April River before heading out on the canoe trip, first up the Niksek River and then the Setifa River.German missionaries Gerhard and Brigitte Stamm with Liebenzell Mission take a MAF plane, a canoe, and trek to reach the Bikaru people deep in the jungle of Papua New Guinea where some have now come to know Christ. Their first visit was approximately 12 years ago to this tribe that had very little contact with the outside world, a small tribe of about 120  that was slowly dying. Some of the older ones from the tribe have found peace through Jesus for the killing and other terrible things that have haunted their sleep.

CCC girls are evacuated to Juba with pilot Eivind Lindthørn.CCC (Confident Children out of Conflict) needed 20 orphans evacuated from a town southwest of Juba where nightly violence  was putting the girls and a few boys in jeopardy. MAF did 2 emergency flights at the end of an already long day of flying for pilot Eivind Lindtjørn. The hard work was rewarding as the girls arrived back in Juba to the CCC compound to shouts of joy from their "sisters".

Record breaking turn-around time

‘Confident Children out of Conflict’ is an organisation that houses orphans on the compound next to MAF’s. They approached MAF to evacuate some of the children they’d placed in a nearby town.

Medair vaccinator James vaccinating a child against measles in Aweil North.A few quotes of James are availabe on the e-library.Medair responded to measles outbreak in Aweil North County, Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] in South Sudan. An alarming number of children have died from suspected measles and local clinics report confirmed cases. We heard of communities that were burying children every day who had died of measles and other preventable diseases.Other factors such as food insecurity, drug shortages and long distances to walk to local health clinics add an extra weight to the critical situation. Mothers of children who were being vaccinated have mentioned they were struggling to find food to feed their families. According to a recent World Food Programme (WFP) report, 5.3 million people in South Sudan currently face severe food shortage, which is likely to lead to high levels of acute malnutrition. Northern Bahr El Ghazal [Lol State] is of particular concern in the report. Malnutrition severely compromises children‚s defence against infectious diseases such as measles, which can push them over the edge with life-threatening complications.
We were able to launch the measles campaign in less than a week. Just last week, more than 40 locally-recruited vaccination teams travelled village to village, all the way to the most remote communities, and vaccinated 48,471 children.‚Emergency Response Team
Emergencies are all too common in South Sudan. Frequent droughts, floods, and conflicts mean that the needs are constantly changing. Medair maintains the flexibility to provide short- or long-term emergency responses to help save lives and strengthen communities. With expertise in WASH (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene), Health and Nutrition, and non-food item (NFI) distribution, our emergency response teams (ERTs) provide swift relief for hundreds of thousands of people across the country each year.Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene Promotion
