Avi Weisfogel has a lot to say when it comes to Operation Smile. And he puts his money where his mouth is. That’s why he wants to raise 2000 USD via GoFundMe.com for the cause. Operation Smile is an international medical charity that helps those in need all across the globe. The focus of the operation is on children and young adults. The mission is to provide free surgical care to children and the same service to young adults with cleft palate or similar needs. Avi Weisfogel believes, “Every child deserves exceptional surgical care….they will always have hope.”
To this end, Operation smile works with professionals, hospitals, governments and non-government organizations alike. Their collective goal is to create medical models and plans that reach as many children as possible. This organized operation is troubleshooting in its nature. They work year-in year-out around the globe. The work Operation smile performs is on a site by site basis and often ranges from one project to another. The organization strives to bring the words of Avi Weisfogel, “Children deserve the best care available.” to life.
Operation Smile is known to be founded in 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee. The Philippines is the site of their first mission. Since then, the operation is made up eighty different international nations working together. The good people of operation smile have more than 220,000 operations under their belt and they’re still counting. But the operation does more than just help others. They teach others to help their local communities through training local medical professionals.
