In a recent interview, Avi Weisfogel spoke of how delighted he is after launching a GoFundMe campaign specifically to fund the operations of Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an international charitable organization that provides children from across the globe with correctional surgical procedures for free. Young adults, especially those with facial deformities such as cleft lips and cleft palate, also benefit from the services offered by the organization. The organization generally seeks to impact positively in lives of every child even those who have been unfortunate in one way or the other. Avi Weisfogel is targeting to raise $ 2000 in his campaign.
In the interview, Avi Weisfogel explained why he chose the medical charity as the beneficiary of the campaign. He spoke of how Operation Smile has a strong belief that every child should be provided with access to high-quality surgical care and that all children should be treated with utmost concern regardless whether they are own or not. It is the objective of the organization to instill hope to the less unfortunate children for them to know that they still have a chance to lead normal lives.
He also revealed that he shares the same beliefs with the organization which have been influenced by his background and passions. This is basically what made him to settle on the organization. He is dedicated to see to it that every child gets exceptional medical care.
Operation Smile was established in 1982 by Bill Magee and his wife Kathy. It usually goes for medical missions in different parts of the world. The very first mission was carried out in the Philippines where many children were helped. During the missions, the organization works closely with the local medical facilities, professionals and governments. During the missions, money is definitely needed and that is why Avi Weisfogel has launched the campaign.
