To continue learning more about our life-changing work, why not sign up for our Discovery Air Pass if you haven't already?
The pass will take you on a virtual journey to a few of the countries we serve in over the course of a year, giving you more detailed information about why we serve in the countries we do, and how you can help us support some of the worlds’ most physically and spiritually isolated people.
You can also stay up-to-date with the latest stories and events from MAF UK on our website and via our social media channels, check out the links at the bottom of this page.
In the meantime, thanks very much and all the best for this year ahead!
Imagine living with an infected wound on your right leg for several months. This was 12-year-old Masha’s story, a girl living in eastern DRC with no access to healthcare. Her wound was so badly infected, if left untreated, she would lose her leg.
Thankfully, MAF was there to fly her to the hospital in Vanga, which has 500 beds, just in time. Through MAF, the hospital receives medicines, equipment and patients, and has an internet connection thanks to a special V-Sat dish, allowing doctors to talk to specialists throughout the world.
Using the internet, the doctors helping Masha could send her x-rays to a specialist in America giving her the best chance of saving her leg – which they did.
God is using both aircraft and internet to save the lives of those with no access to healthcare and treatment they need. Through MAF, Masha has a chance to live a happy life with both feet!

‘Tomorrow we’ll have to go back to Jerusalem,’ one of the visitors said. ‘Even the great King Herod wants to come and honour your son.’ ‘And I am King Herod’s present,’ Alpha whispered. ‘You’re going to the King’s court? Wow, that’s amazing,’ Mike said. ‘It’s because I’m a first-class giraffe,’ Alpha said, beaming with pride. They all had a late night. The visitors told a lot of exciting stories, and of course everyone tried to spot the special star in the night sky. Despite their inexperience, it wasn’t hard to find the one that was shining even brighter than all the other ones.
