A Reason to Smile
Cleft palate and cleft lip are conditions that a lot of children in the world suffer from. In some cases, a child may have to live with the ailment because of lack of money for an operation. Operation Smile aims to provide the necessary care for children suffering from such conditions. The foundation also makes it possible for children around the world to get oral care, which is not always affordable to some. Through his GoFundMe campaign, Dr. Weisfogel aims to raise money towards the charity to contribute to the work it does across the globe.
A smile is something that very individual strives to have, but some children don’t have that pleasure. Children born with facial deformities may get surgery to improve their smiles, and that is what Operation Smile is all about. In his stride to help raise money for the foundation Dr. Wesfogel is working to put more smiles on millions of children. Any money that goes into Wesfogels’ GofundMe account will go directly to Operation Smile.
