VERTU CONSTELLATION SMILE: Inspired by the Life-changing Work Carried out by Smile Train

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common birth defects, which result when facial structures that are developing in an unborn baby don't close completely. They most commonly occur as isolated birth defects but are also associated with many inherited genetic conditions or syndromes. Having a baby born with a cleft can be upsetting, but cleft lip and cleft palate can be corrected. In most babies, a series of surgeries can restore normal function and achieve a more normal appearance with minimal scarring.

 

 

VERTU helps as many of these children as possible, by launching an initiative with Smile Train, a worldwide organization based in New York City, to help kids in developing countries access urgent cleft-palate surgery. Over past years, Smile Train has provided over 750,000 free cleft surgeries, allowing each child to fully integrate into their community as well as receive comprehensive, rehabilitative care, including speech therapy.

 

The VERTU CONSTELLATION SMILE is a Symbian-based smartphone with decent specs and with charity in mind: for every VERTU CONSTELLATION SMILE handset sold, an operation to transform a child's life will be funded by VERTU. With every purchase of these special edition handsets, a child suffering from cleft lip or palate will receive free surgery from Smile Train. VERTU has committed at least one million euros to Smile Train through the sales of VERTU CONSTELLATION SMILE.

 

 

Since its inception, VERTU, the market leader in luxury mobile phones, has been committed to creating a colorful life for its customers and discovering beauty in life. As a global company, VERTU focuses on its development while always practicing social responsibility and actively participating in philanthropy. VERTU CONSTELLATION SMILE particularly shows VERTU’s caring for ones in need.
