5 Steps to Successfully Crowdfund Your Medical Treatments in India

by Daniel M. writter

Medical emergencies can befall anyone without warning. While you may have medical insurance, they often don't cover many aspects of the required medical treatments. This is where crowdfunding can become your lifesaver. Keep reading to find out how to crowdfund your medical treatments in India successfully.

Capitalism has made healthcare inaccessible to many people in India. But with the internet connecting the whole world, it has become much easier to tell people your story. Crowdfunding amplifies your stories and helps other people to come to your aid. There are many ways to raise funds. But when it comes to matters of great urgency such as medical treatments, you should always be smart about how can you crowdfund your medical treatments in India with the most efficiency.


#1- Create an Impactful Campaign Page

Don't be afraid and skim on the details. Your campaign should convey the urgency of the fundraiser and help the potential donors feel empathy. Make sure it is strongly worded and verbally correct. Focus on how the audience will receive your headline and writing a story that the donors can relate to. You can also include photos, videos of your family and yourself to increase the impact of your campaign.


#2- Choose Your Platform Wisely

While crowdfunding is one of the best self-empowered ways to raise money, all crowdfunding websites do not aim to help people. Many websites charge heavy platform fees or may hide malicious links in between the content of campaign pages. Hence it is important to choose your platform after careful consideration. Platforms such as Ketto also offer campaigns that involve 0% platform fees. You have to ensure that the platform your choose is safe and the donors will trust the website while donating.


#3- Don’t Forget to Include Your Proof of illness

Creating a medical crowdfunding campaign can sometimes make you feel like you are taking advantage of the dire conditions of the patients you want to help. But the truth is that due to many false campaigns across the internet, donors need a valid proof of illness before donating. You can use pictures of the patient along with the medical examination or records that can be made public to submit as proof of ailment. If you are mentioning a doctor’s name and contact, make sure that she/he can be reached frequently to verify the nature of the illness. 


#4- Use the Power of Social Media

When it comes to taking your campaign on online platforms, set the sky as your limit. You can amplify the reach through multiple Instagram pages by collaborating with influencers and friends. You can also use Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter which has become very popular in India. If you are physically and mentally available to create podcasts or do live interviews on these platforms, that can be very impactful. Lastly, if you can include your photo identity, that contributes a personal touch to the campaign that helps the donors to empathise.


#5- Take the Donors Through Your Journey

It is very important to stay in touch with your donors. Many donors want to know about the recovery process, and it also helps them to understand that their money has been used for a good purpose. You can send them small gifts, thank you notes or organise a virtual event to express your gratitude. This will also provide them with peace of mind and help them donate again in future. 



The Final Word

Following the steps mentioned above, you will realise that medical crowdfunding is a fairly easy and convenient job. Medical crowdfunding has helped save many lives in our country as our public healthcare structure is unstable. By starting your fundraiser, you can feel empowered and self-sufficient while also extending a helping hand to others in need. You can also include rewards in your fundraiser or hold a benefit for your donors to express your gratitude.
