Watsi is a crowdfunding site for healthcare that just launched three months ago and has already processed nearly $30,000 in donations. The initial projects are all fully funded, with 100% of the donations going directly to patients in need of various medical treatments, like heart surgery or physical therapy. Thirty people have received life-changing medical care because of these donations.
Watsi connects people with patients in serious need of low-cost healthcare and enables them to fund high-impact treatments. Their aim is to change the world, one treatment, one person, and one life at a time. The global crowdfunding platform is also 100% transparent, providing a record so you can know exactly how your donations are being used. All of the relevant information, from transfer receipts to patient waivers, are available in a Transparency Google Document.
