FAQs

TEAM Aid is a Team for Emergency Assistance Management. We are like first aid for people in a foreign land in their emergency situations. We are a large group of dedicated, selfless volunteers committed to assisting people. We assist people and their beloved ones involved in emergency situations such as accidents, homicides, suicides, fires, or floods. We are not a local government-run emergency assistance service (like 911 in the USA), but we provide voluntary assistance to the people in our best capacity.

No. We are a voluntary and non-profit organization.

No. We do not have any hospitals or shelters.

We work only out of virtual offices. We are groups of people in all major cities across the world. Majority of us are in the USA and Canada at present. We are rapidly spreading to all over the world.

May or may not. But we do. Consulates do not have enough officials to go places where the incident happens, whereas we have volunteers help you almost all over North America and many other countries.

To bring or send back (a person, especially a prisoner of war, a refugee, deceased etc.) to his or her country or land of citizenship.

Yes, it could be very expensive. It must be handled through licensed funeral homes. In many cases, the funeral home takes advantage of the family’s desperation. For instance, we have experienced a funeral home in Houston charging an Indian family $36,000 to send a body to India. Whereas it should cost only between $4,000 and $7,500.

Upon the receipt of information, Our National coordinators immediately alert local volunteers through a user group message. Whomever the volunteers in that area are available, respond, assess the need, and start to assisting the affected family. National coordinators, who have previous experience, carefully guide the family in planning either for the local funeral or for the international repatriation.
Every case is different and every situation is different but we provide the following assistance:

  • Selecting the Funeral home, who would be economical, efficient, experienced, and licensed.
  • Voluntary help in obtaining necessary documents for Repatriation.
  • Providing local transportation, food and guidance to the family, and friends as much as our volunteers could.
  • Constantly communicating with the family members about the progress of repatriation.
  • Follow up with the Funeral home to supervise the process and expedite it if necessary.
  • Guiding the family in obtaining Insurance, retirement, legal benefits.
  • Providing moral support to the affected family members.
  • If the deceased family is in need of financial assistance to cover repatriation or funeral expenses, we evaluate their need and support.
  • Coordinate with consulates in obtaining transport permits and necessary visas for the family.
  • We protect the dignity of the deceased and his/her family.
