Reading, Mass.-based mobile health company Health eVillages raised $58,000 in August, most of it in cash drummed up through the company’s inaugural golf tournament.
The "Apps Save Lives" tournament brought more than half of the new funds, which were topped off by a $20,000 donation from the Vodafone Americas Foundation.
Health eVillages provides hospitals and care centers with Apple devices pre-loaded with clinical support apps. The company has launched 6 pilot programs in Uganda, Kenya, China, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Pacific Island nations and rural Louisiana.
The company’s recent fundraising golf tournament was held in New Jersey and hosted by Physicians Interactive and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights, according to the press statement.
