At home Avi Weisfogel is a proud father of six children who have probably played a role in inspiring him to support an organization called Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization that he believes contributes greatly to his hopes of giving children access to the best healthcare that they deserve.
Operation Smile is an international charity that has so far worked in over 80 countries helping children with cleft lip and cleft palate to “restore their smiles” through free surgery. The organization reports having completed “hundreds of thousands of free surgeries” since 1982.
During the medical missions, Operation smile works in conjunction with, and trains local doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers. Training and working with local providers is effective at making sure that care is provided in line with local cultures and also ensures that care continues to be provided even after the mission is over.
In March 2016 Avi Weisfogel announced the launch of a Gofundme page for the benefit of Operation Smile. His target is for the campaign to raise $2000 to be donated to Operation Smile.
