Women are incredible! 
 
As part of our week celebrating incredible women, check out today's story of a 13 year old girl who was on the verge of blindness until she met Tsehay, an Orbis trained eye care worker, who saved her sight by prescribing an antibiotic costing Orbis just 15 cent! Do something amazing today... support incredible women!

ORBIS is the official charity at the Flightfest this weekend (15th September) - a once in a life time event that will see over 35 aircraft fly at low level along the River Liffey. Over 100,000 people are expected to line the Liffey to watch the aircraft, old and new, including the Boeing 737 and Airbus A380 Superjumbo aircraft. The Irish Air Corps and the Royal Air Force will also participate and spectators will enjoy a variety of helicopters and historic aircraft, including the B-17 Flying Fortress.
 
With ORBIS’ link to the aviation industry, through our unique Flying Eye Hospital, this is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our sight saving work and raise vital funds for our continued efforts to eliminate avoidable blindness in Ethiopia. For more information visit www.flightfest.ie

ORBIS is working to eliminate avoidable blindness in the developing world
Introduction
ORBIS delivers a special gift to thousands of people across the developing world, their sight.
 
In too many countries children who are blind or visually impaired struggle in school, are unable to reach their full potential and are seen as a burden on families and society.
 
ORBIS is an international charity dedicated to the treatment and prevention of blindness in the developing world and since it was founded in 1982 ORBIS has worked tirelessly to achieve its goal.
 
With a focus on teaching and training, ORBIS has carried out more than 1000 sight saving programmes and treated more than 15 million people worldwide.
