- Communication with home is only possible via satellite internet connection. Uploading photo’s and other files is only possible after permission, due to data limits.
- Costs: return ticket to Malta (available as from € 160) and possibly 1 or 2 nights in a hotel on the island.
- The skipper determins the assignments. The RIB skipper is always the skipper. This responsibility does not alternate. If you would like to join as RIB skipper, would you also please indicate if you are willing to join as passage member or deck staff?
Volunteering through Boat Refugee Foundation is done on your own responsibility. As a foundation we are not responsible for your trip, the costs, cancellation fees or other circumstances. That’s why it’s important to get a good travel insurance. We have additional insurance for the activities you do for us.
Also, it’s important to inquire about vaccinations prior to the volunteering work. If you wish to be sponsored, you need to see to that yourself!
During a mission the foundation has a buddy system to support colleagues and you maintain a journal to record your experiences.
If you would like to receive follow up care, Boat Refugee Foundation will provide this.
