Directors are pleased to announce their intent to encourage  DXpeditions  to
provide  humanitarian  aid  and   services    benefiting    individuals  and
communities they visit on DXpeditions. Additional funding is available  when
a DXpedition submits a  plan  to  provide  humanitarian  aid,  the  plan  is
approved by INDEXA, and the plan is successfully completed  and  documented.
This incentive can be as much as an additional 15% added  to  the  financial
support offered the DXpedition. See  http://www.indexa.org/humanitarian.html
for detailed information about the process to follow.
