Watsi is a nonprofit crowdfunding web platform that raises funds for healthcare treatment of individuals in the developing world.
Focusing on a handful of people, or “stories,” at a time, Watsi will avoid the potentially overwhelming amount of options on sites like Kiva, aiming to be unique in their approach to cultivating a relationship between the cause and the donors.
Launched in August 2012 after a year and a half of diligent work, Watsi endeavors to be a “Kiva for healthcare.” Founded by Adam Chase, Watsi’s kickoff follows a single successful pilot campaign during which it proved its worth, crowdfunding heart surgery for a young girl in Nepal in just two days.
