It seems to me that whatever happens, it's the responsibility of the travel agency and the organization, not you personally. However, since you don't specify the organization or your relationship with it, it's hard to imagine the circumstances. For example, I'm not sure what happens in the case of volunteer work where the sponsor makes travel arrangements but participants pay their own way, although I'm tempted to draw an analogy with the case of passengers on a cruise ship who delegate their plane tickets to the cruise line.
