An impoverished country faces COVID-19 with sporadic electricity, but Mission Aviation Fellowship is working to bring help and hope in the Name of Jesus.

COVID-19 in Haiti

MAF’s work in Haiti has been hindered by COVID-19, says David McCreery, MAF Regional Director of Latin America. “It has really shut down Haiti, and many of the flights that we do in Haiti are for missions that bring people in and out of the country to work with them. All of that has been closed down with the airlines not being able to go there. Read more about Haiti’s fight with COVID-19 here and here.

MAF was almost completely shut down by the virus, but they have been using their planes to transport patients, McCreery says. “Some of those were COVID-19. Some of them are other patients. We’ve evacuated multiple patients that then have had a medivac back to the States. We just fly within the country so we didn’t do the flight all the way back to the States. But we would evacuate the patient from a remote location to the [Port-au-Prince].”
