Care in the Jungle

Watch how you are helping make it possible for life-changing medical care to reach those in the deepest parts of the DRC.

There are so many things we take for granted in the developed world—reliable transportation, quality medical care, being connected through the Internet, to name just a few. In places like the remote parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) access to these things is not just a luxury, it can mean the difference between life and death.

Because of your support of MAF, the Vanga Hospital—deep in the heart of the DRC—is able to bring medical care to hundreds of people and train a new generation of medical professionals to continue meeting needs in this region.

MAF’s airplanes transport doctors, nurses, and patients, but the technological solutions that MAF provides are equally vital for this place to operate smoothly. Having access to the Internet allows the staff there to get feedback on difficult cases from other doctors around the world—which ultimately saves lives!

“God is using these tools, these technologies, the airplane, the mobile phone, the satellite dish together to overcome these physical barriers and these other types of barriers to reach isolated people—and that life can be changed,” said Randy Clairmont, MAF Africa Tech Team Manager.

Thank you for your support of MAF! Because of you, incredible stories like these are possible!
