How it works

For every photo donated, Johnson & Johnson gives $1 to Operation Smile. That $1 will help Operation Smile provide life-changing surgery for children around the world living with cleft lip and cleft palate. It takes 240 photos to provide a safe surgery for a child, ensuring them a healthier and brighter future.


No one should have to live with the burden of an untreated cleft lip or cleft palate. Depending on the type and severity, a cleft can create serious emotional and health issues if it is not corrected. Speech and language development can also  be impaired, and children may also suffer from bullying and social isolation. That’s what drives Operation Smile to bring the highest quality of care to our patients around the world. We create lasting impacts not only on the people we serve, but on entire health systems through our model of comprehensive cleft care and training and education programs.
