The collaboration of MAF International, a Christian Organization that flies in the most isolated communities of the world to support the extremely suffering mass of people, & the Fishtail Air, a leading Helicopter Operators of Nepal has been a year.

After the devastating quake that struck Central Nepal in early 2015, these two organizations began their collaboration under Earthquake Relief Campaign in Nepal. During one year collaboration, MAF & Fishtail Air undertook humanitarian tasks to several isolated quake affected villages. Basic needs like food & water, temporary settlements, Medicine supplies & clothes were delivered to these villages where roadways had no links at all.
