SHANGHAI, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Semiconductor Manufacturing
International Corporation ("SMIC"; NYSE: SMI; SEHK: 981), China's largest and
most advanced semiconductor foundry, today announced a donation of 2 million
Chinese Yuan (including 400,000 Chinese Yuan in individual donations) to the
China Soong Ching Ling Foundation to fund liver transplants for impoverished
children at Renji Hospital (affiliated with Jiao Tong University School of
Medicine) in Shanghai.

Liver transplantation is the only effective treatment for children with
end-stage liver disease, but the procedure still presents many societal,
economic and surgical challenges in China. As most children requiring liver
transplantation reside in remote areas lacking adequate prenatal care, SMIC
initiated the "SMIC Liver Transplant Program for Children" to provide
afflicted children the opportunity for a new life, and to draw attention to
their needs from the local community.

At the donation ceremony, Dr. TY Chiu, CEO of SMIC, presented a check to the
China Soong Ching Ling Foundation. "Children are the hope of every family and
the future of society," he said. "Funding a liver transplant not only saves a
child, it helps a family and benefits society as a whole. SMIC always
participates actively in charitable events and we are committed to fulfilling
our corporate social responsibility to build a more harmonious society."

Li Weipin, Director of Renji Hospital said, "We are grateful to SMIC for
helping children in need undergo liver transplant surgery at Renji Hospital.
Renji Hospital has earned a reputation in China as a leader in pediatric liver
transplant surgery. By working with a number of charities to build a
fundraising platform for children with end-stage liver disease, Renji has
successfully completed liver transplant surgeries for more than 90 children.
In the future, Renji Hospital will continue to provide the most advanced liver
transplant surgeries for underprivileged children with end-stage liver disease
so that more children can grow up healthy."
