Avi Weisfogel, a renowned dentist and philanthropist has recently set up a new GoFundMe campaign to support an organization called Operation Smile. The aim of this campaign is to raise $2000 and create awareness for the activities of the nonprofit organization.
Operation Smile funds activities that help in correcting various facial deformities in children and adults. Most of the surgery that it supports include correction of cleft palate and cleft lip. The organization started in Philippines but has now spread internationally to over 80 countries. It was started by Bill and Kathy Magee back in 1982.
This organization provides its services free of charge. As such, the organization relies on donations from well wishers to fund their activities. Most developing countries lack the equipment that are needed for the surgery. In such cases the Operation Smile must import equipment which is costly. Operation Smile has supported close to 220,000 free surgeries. Their missions are carried every year around the globe.
They also train medical professionals in many countries who then perform these surgeries. This ensures that the organization’s activities can still be carried on by the local doctors and nurses. Operation Smile has many volunteers in the countries where it operates. They make the surgeries successful through collaboration with local governments and other nongovernmental organizations. This collaboration makes their surgeries more efficient as the services are delivered according to the culture and language of the patients.
Avi Weisfogel has supported various humanitarian causes. His passion and dedication to correcting various defects of the oral system have made him find a way of supporting Operation Smile. Weisfogel said, “My passions and background led me to select Operation Smile as the beneficiary of the GoFundMe campaign I’m running.” He specified his reason for wanting to support the organization as, “Operation Smile believes that every child deserves exceptional surgical care. The organization wants to ensure that every child knows no matter what life throws at them, they will always have hope.”
To create awareness for the GoFundMe campaign and activities of Operation Smile, Weisfogel has created a video that briefly summarizes the goals and benefit of the organization. His dedication to this campaign is to ensure that all the affected children around the world have hope for a healthier and better tomorrow. Avi Weisfogel is an award winning Dentist who is based in New Jersey. He mentors other dentists on how to manage different conditions and sleep disorders.
