About Smile Train:
Founded in 1999, Smile Train is the world's 
largest cleft charity with over 2,200 partner surgeons 
operating in over 1,100 partner hospitals, 
and has helped more children in over 80 countries 
- many of the world's poorest, 
recently performing our 750,000th surgery. 
Smile Train provides free cleft lip and palate surgery 
to children from poor families that give a child 
not just a new smile, but also a chance at a new life. 
For additional information,

The unique partnership between Vertu, the market leader 
in luxury mobile phones and Smile Train, 
a worldwide organisation providing free 
corrective surgery for children was driven by the belief 
that everyone should have the right to clear communication. 
Charles B. Wang Chairman of Smile Train and 
Perry Oosting President of Vertu



Over the past twelve years, Smile Train has provided over 
725,000 free cleft surgeries, allowing each child to fully integrate
 into their community as well as receive comprehensive, 
rehabilitative care, including speech therapy. 
At the heart of the partnership was the creation of the 
handset Constellation Smile, a unique variant of 
Vertu’s most recent smartphone offering, 
Constellation Touch which sees Vertu donating 
200 euro from each Constellation Smile to the charity. 
Vertu has committed at least one million euro to 
Smile Train through the sales of Constellation Smile, 
and for every Constellation Smile sold, 
an operation to transform a child’s life will 
be funded by Vertu resulting in a life being changed for the better.
Mary McCartney and Perry Oosting President of Vertu

Perry Oosting, President of Vertu commented: 
“As a pioneer and leading manufacturer of luxury mobile phones, 
communication is one of the founding cornerstones of our brand. 
Offering the means to communicate whilst ensuring our handsets and 
services are of the highest standards are fundamental values 
that have inspired us since the creation of Vertu.
 Today, we are proud and pleased to be starting out 
on this new journey with a prestigious charity such as Smile Train
 whereby we can help change the lives of the children through 
corrective cleft lip and palate surgery and ensure that 
these children always have a voice.”


“Partnering with such an amazing company as Vertu 
not only raises the awareness of the work that Smile Train 
has done for over a decade, but allows us to have greater 
visibility to high-net worth individuals around the world,” 
said Charles B. Wang, Chairman of Smile Train. 
“We are so proud to have such a partner, 
and this continues Smile Train’s efforts of 
seeking out best-in-class companies to be 
associated with and expand our presence.”
