COST (see expedition specifics for details):
All prices are quoted in U.S. Dollars. They are based on tariffs, airfares, accommodation rates, and rates of exchange quoted to Charity Anywhere Foundation at the time of publication. These prices are expected to be in effect at the time of departure; however, prices are subject to change without notice. Charity Anywhere Foundation will make every effort to avoid price increases; however, any changes in price made by the airlines, hotels, vendors, operators, etc., with which Charity Anywhere Foundation has made arrangements, may be passed on to the participants. If such rates change prior to departure, Charity Anywhere Foundation is not under any obligation to pay extra expenses arising from unforeseen circumstances, such as a change of itinerary or means of transportation, etc. Extra charges are at the client’s expense and will require immediate settlement.
REGISTRATION; DEPOSIT, PAYMENT, AND CANCELATION:
Early reservations are strongly recommended, and a deposit of $100 per person is required at the time of booking. The remaining balance due 30 days prior to departure. Applications received after these dates should include full payment. Any payments made 15 days prior to departure must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order. Final documents (including airline tickets) cannot be sent until final payment is received. Checks should be made payable to CHARITY ANYWHERE FOUNDATION (payment may also be made by VISA or MasterCard).

THIS IS NOT A VACATION! We advise each participant to have a physical checkup before applying for the expedition. Charity Anywhere Foundation cannot be responsible for illnesses that may occur while traveling. Since expedition projects and group sightseeing can be physically taxing, we recommend that persons who suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, or any physical impairment which could hinder them from normal participation contact Charity Anywhere Foundation prior to submitting an application and have their doctor mail us a letter stating that they have received a recent checkup and are able to participate in this program.

We seek to provide well-located accommodations (not always in the center of the city) representative of the area, which provide typical cuisine; clean, pleasant rooms with bathrooms; friendly service; and efficient management. The class of hotel, etc., is consistent with the price category of the expedition. In some rural project areas expedition participants will sleep in tents and/or other rustic encampments without permanent bathroom facilities or heating. Expedition participants should make themselves fully aware of the living conditions provided with each expedition before applying.
Single people may sign up for accommodations on a share basis and will be assigned roommates if circumstances permit. If a roommate is unavailable, the participant will be notified of the adjusted price (single supplement) prior to departure.
