Surgery Sponsoring Web Donations
Watsi is Making Medical Care Affordable for the Developing World

By: Rebecca Byers (Star) Sep 7, 12

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.
