DR. RISHI RAJ BORAH RECOGNIZED AS AN 2017 IAPB EYE HEALTH HERO

September 2017

After a decade of work growing Orbis’s partnership network in India, Dr. Rishi Raj Borah has earned a spot on IAPB's 2017 list of Eye Health Heroes.

Earlier this year, Orbis nominated Dr. Rishi Raj Borah for IAPB’s Eye Health Heroes, and we are thrilled to announce that he was selected.  

The IAPB Eye Health Heroes initiative recognizes and celebrates frontline staff whose work in the field and engagement with the community makes a real difference in restoring sight. Nominated by IAPB member organizations from within their ranks, or from their partner organizations, the nominated Heroes are from the South-East Asia region.

Rishi has been an integral part of Orbis’s journey in India and has committed an enormous part of his life to help ensure that children across the country have a better life.

Through this journey, Rishi has been an able guide to partners, developing comprehensive children eye care services with a flair of charming people with his affable personality. His resourcefulness and ability to find creative solutions has helped partners surmount challenges, and at times exceed their own expectations.
