Please note that Cancellation and Health & Medical Insurance are NOT included in the cost of your program. We strongly recommend that all participants purchase adequate coverage for the duration that they will be away from home. You can purchase your trip cancellation and health & medical insurance from any provider you choose. It is your responsibility to understand the coverage you have purchased and what is included and excluded.
This insurance covers your costs for your flight should something come up and you are forced to cancel your trip, or if your trip is cancelled for any reason.
All volunteers are strongly urged to purchase health insurance for the duration of their travels. In the event of sickness or injury having this insurance can make the difference between receiving the immediate service required or having delays in service delivery and treatment.
