We are living in a world where one billion people cannot afford medical care, and millions of people are pushed into poverty every year because of medical costs. The Watsi team believes that health is a human right, and that no one should be denied medical care because of lack of financial resources.
Watsi revolutionizes the way everyday people can participate in the fight for global health. By leveraging the Internet and a global network of medical partners, Watsi enables anyone, anywhere to donate as little as $5 to fund low-cost, high-impact medical care for those in need.
In this social media reality people are tired of traditional philanthropy. Donors want to know that their money makes a real impact, they want to have a direct personal connection with their beneficiary. Watsi is a transparent and accountable organization that embodies a new generation of philanthropy; one where people who need help can connect with a global community of supporters, and where donors can have a direct personal connection with beneficiaries across the world. Make a small donation, change one person’s life, change the world.
