In the minute it takes you to read this, another child somewhere will go blind. There are now around 1.4 million children worldwide who suffer from eye diseases or blurred vision.
Your regular Orbis "Kids Sight Friends" monthly donation helps give us the stable, continuous income we need to conduct sustainable pediatric sight-saving initiatives worldwide. Enhancing the long-term capacity of our local partner institutions remains our major focus in this area. Our ultimate aim is to ensure our partners can independently provide affordable, accessible and sustainable quality pediatric eye care for kids. Your regular donations help free up funds by simplifying and cutting administrative processes and costs, so that we can help even more kids to see again. Your kids can even help save visually-impaired kids' sight and transform their lives by just sacrificing a toy or a combo set each month. They will then learn valuable lessons about caring for others through this meaningful action.
Simply make a monthly donation via your Hong Kong dollar bank account or credit card. Once your auto payment authorization is approved, we'll send you a letter confirming when your donations will begin. Your Orbis Kids Sight Friends donation will normally be debited on the 15th day of each month or the next working day if the 15th falls on a weekend or public holiday.
