FundEzer is all about creating a massive community of micro-philanthropists who commit to donating little amounts on a monthly basis for the purpose of helping patients fund medical treatments they cannot afford
Have you realized that most Nigerians are one major health challenge away from sickness-induced poverty and death? The burden of a health challenge can wreck a family’s finances. However, with a devoted community, the burden is shared to the effect that the patient gets treatment without any single person being financially disadvantaged. FundEzer is not just another crowd-funding platform, rather, it is a call to community, a call to being our brothers-keepers, and a call to ensuring that in the event that you are the patient in need, you have a solid community behind you.
Nobody has to die because they lack the funds to access healthcare. We want to see a time where a person receives news from the doctor that he has a condition and needs a surgery and such person does the surgery within a week because he has access to funds made available through the FundEzer community.
– In 2025, the 1000th patient funded by our community of micro-donors comes out from surgery successfully.
– One day in 2030, every patient stands a chance of beating that chronic ailment because they have funds to access medical treatment
Nobody should ever die because they lack funds to access healthcare.
We exist to help desperate families find timely assistance for their loved ones who are facing critical medical conditions.
We are Pan-African in our focus and believe that Africans are innately supportive of one another.
FundEzer is a social venture created by RHIPFactory, the first healthcare startup studio in Africa.
It is a combination of the English word “Fund” and the Hebrew word “Ezer” which means “Help” or “to save or rescue”. Literally FundEzer means FundHelper.
Our big dream is to build a large community of micro-donors (kindhearted people who can give little amounts of money regularly to support campaigns on the platform). We want to democratize Philanthropy.
The idea of Fundezer was birthed from the observation that there were so many uncoordinated appeals of medical assistance for the sick and many people who truly want to help are wary of being defrauded by false claims.
FundEzer verifies every campaign and ensures that donated funds are channeled directly to the managing or prospective healthcare provider. The aim is to satisfy our valued donor community that their donations are strictly applied for the purpose why they donated.
The FundEzer Team is a blend of young, vibrant tech entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds. They include healthcare specialists, business developers, UX researchers & designers, digital marketers, and software engineers.
The team is closely mentored by the highly experienced and versatile leadership of RHIPFactory.
