  • You will need to complete the trip registration form (which requires a scanned copy of your passport) and a signed waiver/release of liability form. We will also email you instructions on how to complete a Ugandan visa. 

  • The iHelp Foundation does not access your final cost until after you return from the trip. However, a typical 14-day iHelp Foundation trip to Uganda costs volunteers roughly $2,800. The cost breakdown includes:

    • iHelp Foundation Operator Fee: $50                   

    • iHelp Foundation Contribution Fee: $400 (covers scrub tub, medications, patient supplies, construction supplies, transportation to/from airport and clinics, clinic lunches)

    • Airfare: $1400-1900 (typically close to $1,700)

    • Lodging: $600

    When you register for the trip, you agree to send a $1,000 deposit to the iHelp Foundation within two weeks and cover any flight cancellation fees should you request to withdraw from the trip.


    *Note the $2,800 cost estimate/breakdown excludes breakfast (about $5/day) and dinners (about $10/day), travel insurance or flight insurance, and background check expenses.

  • The iHelp Foundation will purchase your flight to Uganda (Entebbe International Airport) unless you indicate that you would like to purchase your own flight in the registration form). This helps us ensure each individual or group arrives near the same time to allow travel together as a team. We actively watch flight prices and patterns well in advance to book the most cost-friendly flights.

    The iHelp Foundation will also book your hotel room to allow the team to stay together and make travel to and from clinics efficient and safe.

  • Please review the vaccinations recommended for travel to Uganda by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    We encourage you to schedule an appointment with your local health department or primary care physician at least a month before departure to ensure you are up to date on your vaccinations.

  • The iHelp Foundation is committed to your safety. We take safety precautions seriously and work with our Ugandan partners to prioritize safety.

    We encourage you to review the U.S. Department of State website for the latest information on travel concerns to Uganda.
