Lene Øverland, Orbis Africa CEO, explains: Hortance is an exceptional individual; she engages as well with the Prime Minister as with an ophthalmologist, a nurse or a cataract patient from a poor rural area. She converses with ease in any conversation and her answer is always yes, let’s make it work!’.

Elenor McNab, Head of Program Management at Orbis Africa, elaborates:Hortance is a huge asset to the Orbis team; extremely professional, highly regarded by stakeholders at all levels, and has the ability to demonstrate absolute calm and poise in demanding situations. And she can laugh easily too! We are very fortunate to have her heading up our program in Cameroon. She’s fabulous!’
