Physical/Health Compassion trips typically include travel into the poorest areas of developing countries.
Challenges: Conditions are frequently uncomfortable and physically challenging, including extended periods of walking on rough/unpaved paths, demanding climbs often at high elevation, and long travel times requiring use of modern and primitive, private and public transportation services which may lack accommodations for people with physical disabilities. Dietary and climate changes also add to the physical intensity of our trips, and due to the nature of long periods of travel, experiencing lack of sleep is customary. Some areas may be remote and medical care may not be immediately available in the particular area visited. Please be considerate of these factors as you evaluate your personal readiness for such conditions.
