Samahope Announces New Model To Directly Fund Doctors Providing Critical Medical Care Around The World

.@Samahope directly funds doctors helping women and children in poor regions #GiveHope

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  Samahope, a non-profit that funds life-altering surgeries and medical treatments for women and children in poor regions, today announced a brand-new donation model and a redesigned website to provide care for patients in need.


Samahope will continue to fund critical medical treatments via its crowdfunding platform, but is shifting the focus to the doctors that deliver the care rather than individual patients.

Analyzing feedback from donors, medical partners, and doctors in the field, Samahope's team realized that there is a better, more powerful way to achieve their mission and have a profound impact on a greater number of lives.

"With a new model that directly funds doctors working on the frontlines, we enable our donors to share in a bigger story – the epic challenges of global health – and build long-term, engaging relationships between donors and the doctors they support," said Shivani Garg Patel, Samahope Co-Founder and Managing Director.

Visitors to the Samahope site can now dive into the stories of remarkable doctors who have dedicated their lives and expertise to serving the poorest patients in the world. These doctors share their metrics and report on patient outcomes via regular field reports, giving donors full transparency into their work.

The doctor model eliminates a problem with patient-driven medical crowdfunding models, which rely on graphic patient profiles to attract donors. The move also allows Samahope to expand into new geographies like the United States, which have stringent privacy laws.

"We believe that all people, everywhere, deserve the same level of respect when it comes to sharing details about their health. Samahope's new model allows donors to give directly to treatments in a way that doesn't compromise patients' privacy," said Samahope Co-Founder Leila Janah.

Funds raised will help to expand medical treatments from birth injuries to a wider set, including major burns and pediatric surgeries.
