Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world covering 226,000 square miles.  With so much distance to cover and limited roads, reaching our patients to bring hope and healing has been quite the challenge!  In some cases it could take days to travel to Tamatave where we are located.  Enter this beautiful Cessna pictured here.
No, this is not a new addition to the Mercy Ships fleet, but we have partnered with Mission Aviation Fellowship to transport patients located in remote regions to the ship.  This Cessna can carry 0 to 12 patients at a time allowing journeys that could take days by vehicle to be done in as little as 1-3 hours.  MAF Madagascar has been working here for 25 years and we look forward to partnering with them over the next year.
