This is fast becoming an urgent need for the team in PNG.
MAF in Papua New Guinea is one of our largest programs, providing life-changing service to the eight million strong population. Every year, we perform around 300 medevacs, saving hundreds of lives. Delivering building materials for hospitals and schools, encouraging community development by transporting coffee and other produce from remote villages, MAF is a lifeline for many of the PNG nationals. Doctors, teachers and aid workers could not do their jobs without MAF to transport them over PNG's challenging landscape.
The old systems of the aircraft we use to perform this service are becoming obselete and a source of significant maintenance and certification.
Without reliable systmes of communication, navigation and monitoring, these planes will no longer meet the requirements needed to navigate the difficult flight conditions of mountainous PNG to reach communities in need.
Your help is needed to fund this urgent upgrade.
The cost to refurbish one aircraft is around AU$150,000.
Your tax-deductible gift today to MAF Australia will help fund this urgent upgrade, enabling us to continue reaching and serving remote communities across PNG.
Will you prayerfully consider making a donation towards this appeal, towards helping us more reliably reach those in need?
