Eye Seymour Hope ("I See More Hope") Art Competition

Orbis is a global charity dedicated to saving sight since 1982.

Our cuddly mascot, Seymour (pronounced “See More”), has brought cheer and comfort to children from Ethiopia to Vietnam to Peru who have had life-changing eye surgery aboard our Flying Eye Hospital.

I love being there for kids when they start to get their sight back. It’s so exciting watching them see the world again!”, said Seymour

During this pandemic that has created uncertainty around the world, we need more than ever one of the promises that Seymour has come to embody – hope.

Bringing Seymour to Life Through Art

Orbis Singapore invites you to bring Seymour to life through the EYE SEYMOUR HOPE ("I See More Hope") Art Competition.

See the world through Seymour’s eyes! What activity do you think Seymour would do and the encouraging words he would say to lift our spirits during this tough time?
