Over the years, the organization has built a global network comprised of volunteers from more than 80 nations. The organization has provided more than 220,000 free surgical treatments to children with deformities. Moreover, the organization builds long-term solutions through training medical professionals in the local areas. Operation Smile provides free surgical treatment for children and young adult suffering from cleft lips, cleft palates, and other types of facial deformities.

In addition, he said that the mandate of the organization is let all children know there is hope for a better tomorrow no matter what life throws at them. They use free and exceptional surgical care to motivate all children, especially those who suffer from facial deformities.
Dr. Avi being driven by his passion and conviction that every child deserves access to best care available he has selected Operation Smile as the beneficiary of his Go Fund Me campaign. Operation Smile works with hospitals, governments, and local medical professionals to create surgical care models.
The organization seeks to work with local professionals to provide surgical treatment and health care in language and culture of the locals. However, some specific missions call for medical experts who are not locally available and importation of specialized equipment. The goal of Go Fund Me campaign is set at $2000 in dedication to the noble cause of putting a smile on children with facial deformities and ensuring that every child has hope for healthier and brighter tomorrow.
