Avi Weisfogel has set up a GoFundMe campaign for Operation Smile. He has set the goal at $2000. Operation Smile is a charity company that focuses on helping children around the world. It offers surgical assistance for correcting cleft lips and cleft palates. Other facial deformities are also corrected with their services.
Operation Smile takes monetary donations and also receives help from volunteers in medical fields, such as physicians and nurses. They strive to efficiently help as many children as they can in as many countries as they can reach. They offer personnel to perform medical services and also offer medical equipment where it is needed. They assist countries in setting up the solutions that are best for them in order to help the children of those countries. They also work with local medical services and use local translators so children can be spoken to in their own language.
In 1982, Bill and Kathy Magee, married medical professionals, saw a need in the Philippines for surgical assistance for children who suffered from facial deformities. They created Operation Smile to meet that need. They have expanded operations into many areas globally and have volunteer staff from over 80 countries. Over 220,000 surgeries have been performed through their organization.
