Aviation charity to benefit from BACA fund-raising

Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA) has chosen MAF, a humanitarian organisation operating more than 135 light aircraft across 30 countries in the developing world, as its designated charity for 2013.

 
PRLog - Feb. 6, 2013 - LONDON, U.K. -- Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA) has chosen MAF, a humanitarian organisation operating more than 135 light aircraft across 30 countries in the developing world, as its designated charity for 2013.

“As an association representing companies involved in the air charter market, we thought it was especially appropriate to raise funds for an aviation charity this year,” says BACA Chief Executive Markham Jackson.

MAF UK, which was founded by Air Force personnel after the Second World War, works with sister organisations in the US and Australia as well as with many partners worldwide to  provide flights and logistical support for outreach missions to remote communities in developing nations.

These missions include aid agencies, missions, relief and development programmes, government departments, local churches and other national groups. Just two of the charities MAF supports are Tearfund (education and food distribution in East Africa) and Medair (working in disaster relief, responding to wars and disasters, providing healthcare, water, shelter and sanitation).

Ruth Whitaker, CEO for MAF UK, says:” We are delighted that BACA has recognised the value of the work that we do to help isolated communities in the developing world. We depend mainly on donations to keep our planes flying and we are especially pleased that an aviation association has decided to support us.”

BACA, a non-profit membership organisation for the global air charter industry, raises funds through its highly popular lunches and other events during the year.

The Spring Lunch, sponsored by Amira Air, with additional sponsoring from First Class Cars and Magma Aviation, will be held on Thursday 25 April 2013 at Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the City of London. The Autumn Lunch and Excellence Awards will be held on Thursday 3 October 2013 at Guildhall, London.
