Relief workers and other helpers frequently work in conflict areas and politically instable countries. In order to push their projects forward, they expose themselves to high risks round the clock. With their exceptional benefits, AIDWORKER insurances are tailored to the special assignments of volunteers and aid workers. We have compiled a list for you that includes the key advantages of AIDWORKER.
Aid workers often live and work in remote regions or in conflict areas of developing countries. For this reason, AIDWORKER insurances offer worldwide cover in areas of risk and conflict, even if the Department of Foreign Affairs has issued a travel warning for the respective country. If desired, the passive war risk can be covered as well.
In an emergency, aid workers and their families need support immediately. Therefore AIDWORKER offers a worldwide emergency service in cooperation with an internationally experienced assistance service provider. The members of the staff know the circumstances in the countries of assignment, they help in medical and psychological emergencies, in case of accidents and illness, they find suitable doctor's offices or hospitals nearby, they take over the settlement of the billing, and - if necessary - they organize a return transport.
AIDWORKER offers comprehensive cover in case of infectious and tropical diseases. This applies both to health insurance and to accident insurance.
The insurance needs of aid workers abroad differ. Depending on the country of assignment, the duration of stay, the nature of the task and the extent of responsibility, there are a number of reasonable insurance combinations. For this reason, AIDWORKER functions according to a modular principle. At Information for ..., you will find further information about the most important insurance components for the different groups of persons and assignments.
