— Avi Weisfogel is pleased to announce the launch of a GoFundMe campaign set up to benefit Operation Smile. The organization is an international medical charity providing for free surgical procedures for children. The services also are available to young adults who suffer from cleft palate, cleft lips and other facial deformities. The goal of the campaign set up by Avi Weisfogel is set at $2000. The support for Operation Smile is dedicated to providing every child hope for a healthier and brighter tomorrow.
Avi Weisfogel spoke in a recent interview, “Operation Smile believes that every child deserves exceptional surgical care and that all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own. The organization wants to ensure that every child knows no matter what life throws at them, they will always have hope.”
He continued, “My passions and background led me to select Operation Smile as the beneficiary of the GoFundMe campaign I'm running. Children deserve access to the very best care available.”
Operation Smile works with local medical professionals, hospitals, governments and other organizations to create various surgical care models. The goal is to identify the most effective solutions which will reach as many children as possible.
Each year, Operation Smile conducts medical missions in locations around the globe. The specific mission may require importing equipment or medical expertise, depending upon the on-site resources. The organization always works with local heal providers to provide patient care in their own culture and language.
The charitable organization was founded in 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee. Their first mission was to help children in the Philippines. Over the intervening years, the organization has built a global network with thousands of volunteers from 80 nations. The team has provided more than 220,000 free surgical procedures. In addition, the charity builds long-term sufficiency through training local medical professionals.
