We are delighted with the opportunity of sponsoring your activities and helping you with some of the arrangements. We must warn you, however, that volunteers of Health Volunteers Overseas may be subjected to considerable risks, including, but not limited to, the risks of international travel and terrorism. As our organization is comprised entirely of volunteers like yourself, it has limited funding and has no insurance to cover these risks. Each volunteer is expected to assume any and all risks that may result from his or her activities and to procure insurance coverage as he or she deems appropriate.
Please sign and date this form and return it to the above address acknowledging this notification, releasing us from liability, and indemnifying us from claims against us arising from your activities. We must receive a signed copy of this form before we can continue to process your assignment. Thank you.
Nancy A. Kelly, MHS
