2021 will mark 70 years for Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) for bringing physical and spiritual hope and transformation to the remote communities of Papua New Guinea.
From its humble beginnings in Madang in 1951, MAF PNG now boasts a team of around 100 national and 40 international staff, spread across 11 bases they remain a vital link to local communities, local churches, missionaries, NGOs, development and relief agencies and government departments who are working to change the lives of those living in remote areas.
To be a part of their 70th anniversary MAF is asking Papua New Guineans to share their testimonies of a positive encounter with the pioneer airline.
These could be details of a medical evacuation, testimonies of transformation or stories of joy and hope – written in about 200-300 words or as comfortable. The best articles will be rewarded with a small prize and of course being published on our MAF PNG web and social media channels.
Also, if you have old photographs or other accounts capturing our 70 years of air service across Papua New Guinea, please send them as per the email provided; email@example.com
MAF have also announced the selected winner for their 70th anniversary creative and design of a temporary MAF PNG anniversary logo. The winning logo was submitted by Simon Wamo, a Mt Hagen resident.
As a reward, Mr Wamo’s winning 70th anniversary logo will soon become the temporary face of MAF PNG in 2021 where it will be flown around by their aircraft and also be seen in various other publications, nationwide and internationally.
The runner-up designs were submitted by Israel Kaupa (Gumine, Simbu), Michael Paul Kumo (Kerowagi, Simbu) and Joy Suarika (Goroka, Eastern Highlands) and Anna Rayner (United Kingdom). These top 5 will receive a MAF PNG anniversary prize later this year.
