MAF’s flights to isolated communities in southern Liberia have been celebrated as ‘the greatest joy’.
“Whenever I board a MAF plane, I pray for MAF and all the donors and thank God who made it possible for us to travel from Harper to Monrovia.'' said Sister Philomena Godfrey, a Catholic nun of the congregation of Sisters of the Holy Family, an organization involved in education, social work, and health.
The enthusiastic advocate for girls’ education was overjoyed at the opportunity to fly with MAF and bringing students to the boarding school in the south-east of Liberia. “It’s a miracle, and the joy we have been experiencing is unimaginable. We can arrive in Monrovia within an hour and thirty minutes with a MAF flight.”
The students attending the Sisters of the Holy Family School are from the south-eastern regions of Pleebo and Harper. Two years after Liberia’s Civil War, they reopened a school that had been in operation for the preceding 32 years. Boarding students undertake a challenging and lengthy journey to reach the school via road.
“Thanks to God and MAF, we can transport the girls to Harper on time. They are at the boarding school, which is a blessing and a privilege, again we are grateful,” said Sister Philomena.
''If it weren’t for MAF, we might have remained stranded in remote villages. We reached out to our fellow citizens that are experiencing medical problems and we ran to MAF to help us. Thanks to God for bringing MAF into our lives during this difficult moment in Liberia.”

Sister Philomena spoke warmly of MAF’s safety and efficiency, and she appreciated the pilot’s prayer before each journey. ''I can’t stop thanking MAF, I am so grateful to MAF and to the wonderful pilot.”
