Mission Trip Insurance

One of the “best practices” for all UMVIM and Disaster Relief team leaders and members, individual volunteers, and Primetimers is to secure accident insurance.  Mission Volunteers/Global Ministries strongly urges that no mission group or individualregardless of the type of volunteer work they do—engage in any domestic or international mission volunteer work without securing insurance coverage.  Several “hosting partners,” international and local, are being directed to require that each mission team or individual obtain insurance prior to beginning a mission experience [with that hosting partner].  Both receiving and sending partners are being responsible by ensuring that adequate insurance is available in case of accidents or other medical issues (because personal insurance does not always cover volunteer trips).
