10 Jul Make a World of Difference

Are you a member of a group that wants to make a difference in the world today? Are you looking for international volunteer opportunities? Wherever your interest lies and whatever your skills are, there is an opportunity for you to give back.

Maybe you want to help victims of Hurricane Maria still struggling in Puerto Rico, or those trying to rebuild after the volcano eruption in Guatemala. If your gift is working with children you could volunteer in an orphanage, teach, or help with food distribution. There are also volunteer opportunities if you’re an animal lover, like assisting in an elephant sanctuary in Thailand, or helping with research on a wildlife reserve in South Africa. The volunteer opportunities are endless.

Short term volunteer trips come in a variety of packages such as:
• Medical mission trips
• Community or orphan care
• Teaching or educating
• Refugee assistance
• Building or rebuilding projects
• Church startups and evangelizing
• Environmental projects
• Animal welfare

Whichever route you choose for your trip abroad it’s important to make sure your group has insurance just in case of emergency situations. Group travel insurance is very reasonable and the benefits would include:
• Emergency medical expenses
• Emergency medical evaluation
• Trip cancellation and delays
• Lost baggage
• Claims assistance
• 24/7 assistance with language barriers
• Evacuation due to a terrorist incident

These are just a few examples of the coverage you could receive with group travel insurance. Remember, that the insurance you currently have most likely does not cover you when traveling internationally. With the correct policy you can experience new cultures and countries while making a difference in this world with the peace of mind knowing that you’re covered in case an emergency arises.

You can review the international travel packages with our recommended vendor, IMG, or contact us.
