Samahope is a medical crowdfunding platform, which lets people make donations to doctors in Africa, South Asia and Latin America, so that they can in turn help their patients. The medical treatments Samahope helps to fund are low-cost and low-risk, but they can have a tremendous impact on improving an individual’s health and wellbeing.
Currently, some of the medical procedures that the doctors are hoping to raise enough money to cover include birth-related complications and burn repairs. Samahope also has a page that provides more information about each doctor and the patients that they will treat.
Donations to Samahope can be made on a one-time or a monthly basis, in intervals of $9, $24, or a custom amount as specified by the donor. Samahope asks: "what if $20 could give someone their sight back, or an amputee a new limb?"
