Travel InsuranceOrphan Outreach purchases secondary insurance for each trip participant traveling with us on a mission trip. The cost of the secondary insurance is included in your land cost. Information completed in your application (such as listing your designated beneficiary) is used by our missions office to purchase the insurance. Your trip leader is trained to know what to do in case of emergency and will carry the needed documents during your trip.Gallagher Charitable International Insurance Services (formerly Adams & Associates International® (A&AI)) has developed a plan for volunteers on an international short-term mission trip while on active service with Orphan Outreach. The insurance purchased for the short-term mission trip is a secondary insurance that, for example, covers lost or stolen baggage all the way to emergency medical evacuation. The coverage provides a basic level of Personal Accident Protection, Permanent Total Disability and Property Insurance and is not intended to replace any personal insurance that you may currently have. In case of an incident, the trip participant will need to pay charges and then get reimbursed through the insurance company after filling out the proper claim form after the mission trip.Please see below for a brief summary of the coverage and some of the features of the policy.
