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?

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.

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.
