Our volunteers’ safety and well-being is our priority
All the build sites in the hosting countries that Habitat for Humanity Japan sends volunteers to have fulfilled the safety criteria. The hosting countries, in turn, conduct safety orientations and volunteers will be working under the supervision of skilled construction staff. All volunteers are required to take out the necessary medical insurance coverage. In spite of all these measures, there could be unforeseen circumstances which require a change of the dates or the destination of the build in order to safeguard our volunteers. We seek your understanding and cooperation when such changes have to be made.

Habitat for Humanity International cannot offer specific health advice, and is not in a position to recommend medications and immunizations. Nor do we have any medical requirements for participation in the Global Village program. In these situations, we should always recommend that Global Village team members consult the following websites, as well as their personal physicians, and must determine individually what preventative health measures to take.
