MAF is sending a team, medical supplies and equipment to the devastated island nation.
The objective, says the Idaho Press-Tribune, is to support humanitarian organizations and their efforts in providing relief and supplies.The plane, a new aircraft built in Sandpoint, Idaho, will be stationed in Haiti for 2-3 months, with flight crews changing every 2-3 weeks.
The Christian organizationhas set up a Port-au-Prince airport communications center connected to a sophisticated satellite system to provide high-bandwidth communications to workers from at least 16 international aid groups.
MAF is helping planes refuel and clear cargo through Haitian customs, as well as unload the cargo into the organization's hangar for distribution.
Contributions can be made through MAF at www.MAF.org
