Operation Smile is an international charity organization providing surgical procedures to children and young adults who suffer from facial deformities like cleft palate, cleft lips, and other health issues. Operation Smile was started out in early 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee. In their first mission, helped children in the Philippines. Over the years, the organization has built a global network and has acquired volunteers from over 80 nations. The team has offered more than 220,000 free surgical procedures around the globe. The organization also provides training to the local medical professionals when they are on a mission.
Due to Operation Smile’s growth, Mr. Avi Weisfogel announced the launch of GoFundMe campaign to raise $2000 to support Operation Smile. Avi said that he believes that every child deserves to have good healthcare to ensure equality of all and hope for tomorrow. Avi Weisfogel is a family man and a father of six children and believes every child is entitled to have the best health and dental care available. His love for children has lead him to work hard to support this organization called Operation Smile.
Operation Smile works with local hospitals, governments, professionals and other organizations to create the necessary surgical models. The goal of the Operation Smile is to offer these solutions effectively in the best way possible and reach many children as possible. Each year, Operation Smile goes for different missions around the world. For each mission, the organization may require importing equipment or medical expertise depending on the resources available in the location. They work with the local healthcare providers to ensure they provide the care in the locals own language and culture.
