How Social Impact Plan (SIP) Works?

    How SIP Works

    Social Impact Plan or SIP is an initiative of Ketto, an online crowdfunding platform based in India. Ketto started SIP to make an impact on India’s health care system, specifically for children struggling to afford hospital expenses. It is a large and trusted crowdfunding platform aiming to achieve “Healthcare for All” with the help of a strong community. This article is all about SIP and its impact on the community.


    Indian Health Care System

    Being a developing country, India lags behind in achieving the goal of “Healthcare for All” due to existing Infrastructure. This situation is a result of many issues such as:

    • Neglecting rural population
    • Inadequate government fund allotment
    • Social and cultural drawbacks
    • Shortage of medical equipment and bed vacancy
    • Privatized hospitalization
    • Expensive medical bills

    The health care system has many disadvantages, which makes people go to expensive private hospitals for major life-threatening illnesses. Also, medical bills for chronic diseases are too high for the poor and they eventually tend to give up on treatment. The most affected populations in India involve children under 5 years and elderly above 65. Ketto concentrates on addressing such drawbacks in society by raising funds and helping the needy.


    Ketto

    Online crowdfunding platforms like Ketto are a boon to such needy people. The main aim of Ketto is to help people manage their medical bills and recover quickly. Anyone can create an account, host campaigns and raise funds. In this long journey (from 2012 to 2021), Ketto has supported people undergoing open-heart surgery, kidney or liver transplant, bone marrow transplant, chemotherapy, and so on. Around Rs 1100 crores have been raised  from January 2020 to July 2021 through Ketto. And it effectively participated and contributed to the management of the COVID-19 second wave in 2021.
