Watsi – Everyone Deserves Healthcare
Watsi is a tech non-profit that enables anyone to fund surgery for people around the world. 100% of donations fund surgical care and we work directly with local medical partners to create sustainable, locally-led programs. This enables us to support each Watsi patient through the lens of local knowledge and expertise, helping to deepen our impact creating healthier lives, thriving communities, and strengthened health systems.
The New York Times wrote that “Watsi represents the next generation of charities,” a generation that leverages technology to enable anyone everywhere to create meaningful, lasting impact for those most in need, embraces 100% transparency and focuses on our shared humanity by helping supporters create a direct connection with the patients they are helping. Watsi has also been recognized by CNN as one of its top 10 startups to watch and the White House as a “Champion of Change.” Watsi’s innovative and effective approach drew the early attention of Y Combinator, a start-up accelerator that provides seed money and mentorship, which selected Watsi as their very first non-profit.
