Burial Release:
YWAM Medical Ships - Australia does everything possible to protect staff, volunteers and students on the field. Although death is extremely rare in service with Youth With A Mission internationally and with YWAM Medical Ships - Australia, it nevertheless needs to be considered.

In case of death, YWAM Medical Ships - Australia cannot commit to cover the costs of shipping the body to another country for purposes of burial or to cover costs of burial in the country of death. The family is responsible for all costs of burial, and/or transportation home.

It is also strongly advised that every individual have an updated will.

Burial Statment:
I authorise, request and direct that, in the case of my death during my time with YWAM Medical Ships – Australia, YWAM Medical Ships - Australia may carry out my burial in the location of my death. I acknowledge and have directed that if my family desires to have the body shipped home, they are to ensure all costs incurred by YWAM Medical Ships – Australia will be covered by them. I hereby release and indemnify YWAM Medical Ships – Australia, all its staff, and associates of all and any burial and transfer costs. I acknowledge and declare that this deed binds my heirs, executors, personal representatives and enures for the benefit of YWAM Medical Ships – Australia.

Release of Liability:
To the extent permitted by law, I do hereby release and indemnify YWAM Medical Ships – Australia, its agents, employees, and volunteer assistants from any liability whatsoever, not limited to liability arising for negligence and/or breach of contract, arising out of any injury, illness, damage, or loss which may be sustained by said person or their property during the course of my involvement with YWAM Medical Ships - Australia.

Consent for Treatment:
I hereby authorise, request and direct YWAM Medical Ships – Australia to perform such treatment, anaesthetics, and operations as in the opinion of the attending physician might be deemed necessary and have fully disclosed to YWAM Medical Ships – Australia in writing any medical history or other matters that should be brought to their attention in this regard.

Signature of Agreement:
All outreach participants are volunteers who receive no salary for their work with YWAM MSA.

In addition to personal needs, as partners together in the scope of YWAM MSA, each member of the staff contributes underwriting their own expenses.

Be prepared for a workload of 50 hours per week. Physical fitness is required to a standard necessary for the position one is applying for. Appropriate and culturally sensitive clothing standards must be upheld.

Accommodation for most volunteers will be in a shared cabin on the ship, with separate male and female quarters. While we are occasionally able to allocate private rooms for married couples and families, couples should expect to be separated. Some pre-arranged land accommodation may also be an option.
Participants are required:

If unforeseen circumstances arise (i.e delayed flights, visa issues, etc.) and I am unable to arrive on MV YWAM PNG by the arrival date indicated in the Preparing to Come document and advised by my ship's registrar, I understand that YWAM MSA will not be able to delay the outreach to accommodate for my new arrival date and will not be responsible for any costs associated with your delay (i.e. flight change fees, accommodation etc).

Signature of Agreement: If my registration is approved by YWAM MSA, I will abide by the spirit, rules, and schedule of the organisation. I understand that YWAM operates according to Christian principles and values, and I am willing to abide by the code of conduct, which is based on these values. I confirm that I understand payment of the required fees and agree to do so. I, therefore, accept all responsibility for my outreach and personal expenses incurred during my involvement with YWAM MSA. I understand and agree with the information in the Outreach Information Pack and that YWAM reserves the right to update/change the Outreach Information Pack and Preparing to Come Pack.

I certify that all the information provided in this form is true and accurate. I understand that if any information given is found to be false it could result in my removal from involvement with YWAM MSA.
