At this critical moment in our worldwide health crisis, you can help support life-changing surgery through making a donation today. Watsi is ensuring patients in need can access essential healthcare through the COVID-19 pandemic. Guided by our values and the needs of our patients and local partners, since March we've:
- Increased funding for emergency surgery and safe maternal and infant healthcare, which has reached a crisis point. With an estimated 1 in 3 pregnant women requiring medical or surgical intervention during birth, access to this care must go on, even amidst the pandemic.
- Launched two new partner hospital sites in southern Uganda and central Kenya, funding treatment for 55+ patients.
- Increased funding by 10% for our largest programs supporting patients and hospitals in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Cambodia. Our own patients Kyaw, Julian, and millions of others in the Global South have lost all income or have stopped attending school due to COVID-19.
- Provided our medical partners with $350,000+ to support essential healthcare for 415+ patients. We’ve served as a reliable partner to hospitals and frontline health workers, amidst unprecedented financial constraints impacting the global healthcare sector.
At such a crucial moment, your donation will help us sustain and grow these critical programs, making healthcare more accessible for those in need during this crisis.
