ORBIS CANADA LAUNCHES SIGHTS ON ASIA COMPAIGN
As pioneers in global eye health, we see an opportunity to cultivate better futures where we work. With steadfast partnerships, boundary-pushing tools, techniques and training, we can collaborate to achieve optimal, quality eye health for all. And, by improving access to quality eye health, we’re sharing our vision. Sights on Asia is a campaign led by Orbis Canada, with a goal to raise $300,000 for our pediatric projects, and to build sustainable vision saving services that will eradicate needless childhood blindness in Asia.

While there, participants will gain unique first-hand insights into our local sight-saving programs and even witness life-transforming surgeries. While visiting visually-impaired children's homes in remote areas, everyone will gain a deeper understanding of hardships blind youngsters must face each day and a totally different perspective of life.
