Delivering Health Services to Remote Areas – One Plane at a Time

Ron and Nick will speak about the important work that Mission Aviation Fellowship of Canada accomplishes.  MAF is a Christian, humanitarian, relief and development organization whose mission is to fly light aircraft in developing regions so that people in remote areas can receive the help they need.  In addition to providing immediate emergency response in times of crisis or natural disaster, many of MAF’s flights enable crucial work by many development and aid agencies, missions, local churches and other national groups. Because of MAF, medical care, adequate food, clean water and Christian compassion are reaching thousands of men, women and children living in some of the most isolated places in the world. MAF is celebrating 75 years of bringing hope through aviation and flying for life!

This event is part of the Winter 2021 Speaker series.
