South Africans are hiking so that isolated people in medical emergencies don't have to

The MAF Hike for Flight traverses some of the more difficult passes in the Drakensberg. Our hikers love hiking, but it’s the purpose behind the climb that motivates them.

Thousands of isolated people in medical emergencies are forced to trek double-digit kilometers to reach the nearest rural clinic.

Our hikers hike so that isolated people in medical emergencies can fly.  

The MAF Hike for Flight 2018 took on new heights. The total distance covered was a mere 33,3 km, but it was the climb that nearly blew our hikers away. A total ascent of 2559 m was achieved; their maximum elevation was 3288 m.

Due to weather and safety precautions, the route had to change. They ascended the infamous and pathless Tseketske Pass, summited in Lesotho, tackled cleft peak, and descended Organ Pipes Pass back into South Africa.

God looked after them every step of the way. He even gave them a moonbow on their last night - a reminder of His love, faithfulness, mercy and promises. Thank you, Jesus. 

MAF salutes Alessandro Craparo for leading our team with Dave Trickey. Thank you to all our hikers for their sacrifice, bravery and generosity.
