One of Raptim’s long-time clients, Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), is working hard to contribute to the relief effort after the devastating earthquakes that hit Nepal late April. MAF is on the ground in Nepal, coordinating much needed helicopter transportation to remote areas so that humanitarian agencies can travel there and get to work.“People in remote villages are among those hardest hit, and it has been nearly impossible for aid workers to reach them,” says Dianna Gibney, communications officer at MAF’s headquarters in Idaho. “Even before the quakes, travel was difficult in the mountains of Nepal, over trails or narrow mountain roads. Many of those roads and trails are now covered by landslides and have become unsafe,” she says. That’s why MAF has set up a helicopter response facility to enable relief workers to reach those in need.
