Watsi is an organization created to fund health care around the world for people who are unable to afford it. Simply put, Watsi is part of a movement with an emphasis on DIRECT aid, without blurry organizational costs being deducted from the donations of its supporters.
When looking at the website, it resembles any other crowd-funding site: thumb nails of profiles, and percentages of money goals made.
The difference? The transparency, the genuine need of all of the individuals listed in the profiles, unanimously. Most impressively: the amount of success stories, fully funded treatments.
Watsi is an up-and-coming organization, but already has had over 12,000 donors and supported over 4000 patients.
It is a beautiful example of the human family caring for one another, anonymously, without the challenge of distance, language, race or any other factor in the way.
