We live in an ever-changing world. As borders shrink and people become more globally mobile, knowing what’s happening in the world around us becomes more important. This is especially true if you’re planning an international trip. Your safety is our highest priority. It is important to understand, however, that any trip involves potential dangers and risks which must be considered and weighed carefully.
We at World Partners monitor political situations in the countries where we’re sending teams very carefully. We use a combination of information from our staff and affiliates on the field, embassy notices, and national government warnings to decide if and when a trip should be postponed or cancelled.
If it becomes necessary to postpone or cancel your trip because of political unrest or security, you will be contacted as soon as possible by World Partners staff or your team leader. Whenever possible, the trip will be re-scheduled either at a safer time, or possibly re-located to a safe location. You will be informed as decisions are made.
