Health & Safety Backup
Health & Safety: The health, safety and security of all volunteers and interns are the HAF's top priorities. Right from choosing a project, submitting application, acceptance and pre-departure support we provide, to the day-to-day care of our volunteers on the project. Our dedicated local staff put your health and safety first and is available 24/7 to provide extraordinary program support and care efficiently in a timely manner to ensure your volunteering experience more pleasant, truly amazing and rewarding. We will make sure that you're prepared to confidently lend your support to children in need, make a difference and enjoy the experience.
Our program coordinators are super friendly, professional, welcoming and hospitable and a good listener to listen and address any concerns you might have while volunteering on our project. Together, we work towards the success of our projects as well as the enjoyment and fulfillment of all volunteers. Our local staff also acts as our volunteer’s point of contact during their program duration.
Our local HAF staff regularly visits and daily communicates with our host-families, volunteers, and placements to ensure everything is running smoothly. Before volunteer’s arrival, our project coordinator make’s a final check to ensure your accommodation, meals and necessary arrangements for your placement are acceptable and up to our standards. We maintain a cycle of monitoring all volunteer accommodation and placements to ensure efficiency on projects and extraordinary volunteer satisfaction.
Health and Insurance: HAF do not provide travel or medical insurance of any kind. If a volunteer gets sick while on a project which rarely happen, we cover the minimum first aid treatment, hospital checkups and prescription drug. All volunteers are required to have insurance coverage for their entire program duration. If there is the need to escalate the issue or medical treatment, we will immediately communicate with your family or emergency contacts and explain the situation accordingly to take necessary action.
