Help us to move one step closer to eliminating the “Nation of the Blind’!
The World Health Organization estimates that there are currently some 285,000,000 visually impaired people worldwide. If this figure represented a national population, it would be the fourth most populous country in the world today! In attempting to overcome such a huge challenge, Orbis is continually striving to enhance their sight-saving capabilities.
To keep Orbis’s newly refurbished Flying Eye Hospital flying high and delivering the sight of hope in remote corners of the world, you are warmly invited to join “Walk for Sight” 2017! In doing so, you will play a small but vitally important part in energizing Orbis’ sight-saving power and enabling us to create a brighter future for every visually impaired citizen of the world’s ‘Nation of the Blind’.
The 2017 walkathon will kick off at 9:30am on Sunday March 26 at Tai Tam Country Park. In addition to a choice of ‘family-friendly’ 6-kms or ‘experienced’ 10kms walks, we will be making your day away from Hong Kong’s hustle and bustle doubly memorable with a fun-packed post-walk carnival. A range of kids-friendly activities, including game booths, DIY workshops and stage performance will be organized at the Hong Kong International School.
Please put your best feet forward and help our latest “Angel with Wings” to fly even further in its mission to eliminate the ‘Nation of the Blind’!
