Since 1980, MAF has provided safe, efficient air transportation for the Lesotho Flying Doctor Service (LFDS) and other agencies operating in Lesotho. In addition, MAF provides weekly flights to six health clinics operated by Partners In Health (PIH). Nearly 300,000 people depend solely on LFDS and PIH for medical care. Currently, nine MAF missionary families and seven indigenous staff operate and maintain five aircraft. MAF serves 12 rural mountain health posts from over 20 dirt airstrips carved into the nation’s rugged mountains. MAF services enable the work of over 35 partner agencies, including Africa Inland Mission (AIM), International Mission Board (IMB), William J. Clinton Foundation, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Samaritan’s Purse, and Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM).
