The deadline to sign up for a trip is approximately 5-6 months before departure. This lead time allows for United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM) team training, fundraising and thorough preparation before travel. Your completed application must be received by HCW by the deadlines listed above.
All team members must be 18 years or older at time of travel and must have a valid passport. Each team member must raise a minimum of $3000* in order for HCW to send you on a team. All donations to HCW are tax deductible. Fundraising deadlines will be determined at the first team training session. If deadlines are not met, you may transfer your application to another trip. Please visit Helping Children Worldwide or contact us at 703-793-9521 for more information about UMVIM teams.
*Missioners not originating from the Washington, D.C. area may have a higher fundraising requirement. Please contact us for more information.
