We are thrilled to have Kim join the Orbis team. I am so impressed with her his­to­ry as a suc­cess­ful fundrais­er for glob­al orga­ni­za­tions. Kim’s exper­tise in fundrais­ing will direct­ly impact Orbis’s mis­sion and our abil­i­ty to ensure every­one, no mat­ter where they live, can access qual­i­ty eye care.”

I am excit­ed to work with Orbis because it is mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence in people’s lives in the most vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­ni­ties glob­al­ly. The work rec­og­nizes the dig­ni­ty, val­ue, and hon­or of those liv­ing with blind­ness and acknowl­edges that every com­mu­ni­ty in the world is home to peo­ple who face cur­able eye dis­eases. Through­out my career in non­prof­its, my pas­sion has been serv­ing vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­ni­ties, and Orbis pro­vides me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tin­ue that work as its leader of fundraising.”

Welcome to the team, Kim. With this new appointment, we're looking forward to transforming even more lives in 2023 and beyond.
