You will be responsible to make all of your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodation after April 13 when the team checks out of the hotel.

Please pray about what your involvement is to be – contact us at medicalmissions@joycemeyer.org right away if you would like to attend this outreach and we will email you an application. Once you are an approved volunteer, you will not need to re-submit an application for additional outreaches.

If you have not filled out an application and been approved in the past for an outreach, your first step will be to submit an application to us before you put down a $300.00 non-refundable deposit.

Upon acceptance to the Philippines team, we will provide you with the information to book your airline ticket. Hand of Hope will pre-select the team flight and we work closely with a travel agent who will coordinate the team’s itineraries.
