“MAF is a life-saver. When a close friend of mine became critically ill, MAF provided much-needed support and provided him with thousands of dollars in medical assistance within a few days. We are deeply indebted to MAF and its generous donors for making it so easy and simple to obtain emergency funds that significantly reduced a huge financial burden.”
