Our Campaign Story

About Campaign

Imagine if the nurse attending to you does not know CPR - and you desperately need one. Or if you are still groggy from Anaesthetics but the nurse discharges you. You might think "this is ridiculous! How can they be nurses if they do not know Basic Life Support?"

Sadly, this is the truth in many of our neighbouring countries. Many nurses in countries such as Vietnam, China and India do not have knowledge of Basic Life Support or Patient Care.

This is why we train nurses and other health professionals in pre- and post-surgery care to ensure that patients get the full continuum of care.

And this is what makes Orbis different from others.

12 May is International Nurses' Day, a day where we celebrate the contributions of our noble nurse friends. But let's also take this day to raise awareness of the challenges they face in their course of work.

Give today to make training a reality for all nurses around the world. Donate today to make vision a reality for all. All funds donated will contribute to our sightsaving work around the world.

About The Charity

253 million people in the world are visually impaired. But 3 out of 4 of them - millions - are needlessly blind, just because they can't get the eye care that so many of us take for granted in Singapore.

Orbis is an international non-profit organisation that transforms lives through the prevention and treatment of blindness. With our network of partners, we mentor, train and inspire local teams so they can save sight in their communities.

We focus on training, capacity building and partnership because we know these are some of the best and most sustainable ways to help improve eye care services. By helping countries build the know-how, systems and support they need to deliver eye care to their people on their own, we work together as one to ensure no one loses their sight to a preventable or treatable disease.
