Trinh was hit by a truck when she was walking home from her grandma’s house one day. When she woke up, she could not see clearly. An Orbis Volunteer Faculty performed her surgery while training local doctors, and this was broadcast onboard the Flying Eye Hospital. Trinh recovered and is living her dreams today.

It is estimated that 3 million children in Vietnam are visually impaired, but only about 10 ophthalmologists are available for every 1 million Vietnamese patients!

The Flying Eye Hospital is calling Vietnam in August and Myanmar in September 2019.

The project will focus on advancing the knowledge and practices for effective prevention and treatment of paediatric and eye conditions that are most needed in the region. Orbis’s team will be there to mentor, train and inspire local teams to save sight in their communities.

As part of our fundraising efforts for Southeast Asia and our Flying Eye Hospital, we are organising a Gala where foundations, individuals and businesses can contribute towards preventing avoidable blindness in countries on the Belt and Road. Join us as a sponsor, meet like-minded supporters for pre-dinner drinks followed by dinner. Hear stories of people whose lives you are helping to transform. Empower them to live their dreams today.
