Acknowledgment, Assumption and Release
I, the undersigned, wish to participate in a short-term mission project in Nicaragua conducted under the auspices of Chosen Children Ministries (“CCM”). By signing this form, I acknowledge (1) that traveling to and in the Country of Nicaragua involves hazards not customarily encountered when traveling in America. (2) Medical facilities in Nicaragua are substandard and that should a medical emergency develop during my trip, it is unlikely that I will receive medical care in Nicaragua equivalent to that available in America. (3) Working conditions in Nicaragua are often inferior to conditions in America. (4) CCM does not carry insurance to insure against any of the risks I may encounter in Nicaragua. Despite the foregoing, it is my desire to participate in the work in Nicaragua, and I knowingly assume the risks that are involved and release CCM, its employees and agents, from any liability for injury, damage, or harm which may occur to my person or property while traveling in connection with this project or otherwise participating in this project. I affirm that I am eighteen (18) years of age or older, or the parent/guardian of the participant if under eighteen years of age, and that this Acknowledgment, Assumption, and Release is binding on me and my executor, administrators, and heirs. I give CCM and its representative (s) with me on any such trip authority to request and authorize medical and/or hospital treatment for my benefit in the event of any injury or sickness sustained by me while on such ministry activity, including, without limitation, while traveling to and from any foreign country. I agree to pay for all such treatment and to reimburse CCM for all costs and expenses incurred by it with respect to such treatment.
Covid-19 Protocol and Release of Liability
I assume all liability and risk for any injury, sickness or death that may occur from contracting or being exposed to COVID-19. I am assuming all of the risk through my voluntary participation. If I am exposed to, or if I test positive for COVID-19 while in Nicaragua, I agree that I will be solely responsible for all expenses related to, but not limited to meals, medicines, medical treatment not covered by our insurance, ground/staff transportation, flight changes or other logistic issues and compliance with COVID-19 protocol. I further agree that I will be solely responsible for the cost of all medical care and treatment and CCM will have no obligation to provide care or assistance outside of their normal scope. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless CCM from and against any losses, costs, damages and expenses resulting from contracting COVID-19 arising from participating in this project. I waive all civil liability against CMM for any injuries caused by the inherent risk associated with contracting COVID-19.
