Orbis Blindfold Lunch 2017 is now open for enrollment!
How does it feel to live in utter blackness? Experiencing the difficulties and dangers blindness poses first hand is better than any written description we can give! Once they donned eye masks, these schoolkids were cast into darkness and were challenged to eat lunch like never before. 2017 will again see us organize a sixth annual Blindfold Lunch campaign. The ultimate aim is to encourage local schoolkids to cherish their sight by experiencing first hand a small taste of the difficulties blind people face every day!
Orbis launches the Blindfold Lunch Campaign from today onwards. This year, Orbis cooperates with Sanrio and invites Cinnamoroll to undergo blindfold experience with primary students.
After enrolling, your school can arrange to host its Blindfold Lunch any day on or before May 26, 2017. We will provide all participating students with a set of Blindfold Lunch eye care game cards. We will provide all participating students with a set of Cinnamoroll Blindfold Lunch eye care game cards. All students who donate HK$30 or over will also receive a themed eye mask plus a braille bookmark.
To help you maximize awareness, we will also be delighted to provide the following support materials:
- Activity posters and blindfold lunch eye care game cards

Snapshots from past years Blindfold Lunch campaign:
Our Blindfold Lunches first launched in 2012 and have so far attracted over 40,000 students and helped raise over HK$2,400,000 for our sight saving work. Happily, everyone who took part vowed to take better care of their eyes when their blindfolds were removed and their sight “restored”.
Act now! Enroll and join this meaningful event by March 31, 2017, and help us to transform lives of millions of blind children in the world!
