Program Details Mozambique is a large sub-Saharan African country filled with beauty and natural resources. This former Portuguese colony is still reeling from the effects of a communist regime and brutal civil wars. The people of Mozambique are the ones who have to pay the price. One in seven children dies before the age of five. One in nine Mozambicans are HIV positive. The UN ranks this country 185th out of 187 for social and economic development. Read More MAF is working to change that. MAF provides vital aviation services to mission agencies, national churches, and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) ministering in Mozambique. Because of you, MAF has been enabling and maximizing ministry in Mozambique since 1999. From its base in Nampula, MAF missionary families and indigenous staff maintain and operate two aircraft. MAF serves those who work with the Makua, Makonde, Lomwe, Chuabo, Yao and other people groups of northern Mozambique. With the help of MAF, missionaries are able to reach more people with the Gospel. A journey that formerly required three grueling days of travel by truck, and much longer on foot, now takes only hours or even minutes by MAF aircraft.
