About Campaignends 31 Dec 2018, 11:59 PM
When children can see clearly again, they learn better in class. They can help out with housework and play with their friends.
Restoring sight ensures that all children have a happy childhood and equal opportunity to learn and participate in the creation of a strong, vibrant society.
Millions of children are needlessly visually impaired - just because they can't access the care they need. Some don't even know that their eye conditions can be treated!
Funds raised from this campaign will go towards our children's programs around the world. We can conduct school screening programs, educate children and their parents, train teachers to identify students with vision problems, train doctors and nurses to perform new surgical techniques and many more.
We focus on building the capacity of our partner hospitals through training, facilities and infrastructure. We ensure that the communities they serve have access to sustainable, quality eye care service even after our project has ended.
With your support, we can run and expand our programs to help children see again so that they can lead a meaningful life.
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.
