Orbis Online Charity Auction

Thursday 9th July, 2020

Date Thursday 9th July, 2020
Time 9:00AM

Globally, our fundraising events as well as the Singapore Gala have been postponed and finally cancelled. To continue Orbis’s programs around the world, we are organising an online auction on 9 July 2020 that will run for five days. Join in on 9 July to #BidForSight!

Orbis’s Work Amidst COVID-19

COVID-19 pandemic may have grounded our Flying Eye Hospital, but it has not stopped our mission to prevent blindness.

In challenging times like these, Orbis continues to provide training through Cybersight, and care in a safe manner to those affected by severe vision-threatening eye conditions.

In Peru, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Mongolia, we are caring for premature babies at risk of developing Retinopathy of Prematurity as treatment must be carried out within 32 hours of diagnosis to prevent permanent blindness.

Below are some donated paintings, featured experience and favourite memorabilia from the collection in support of our fundraising effort.

Experience

Maldives Coco Collection Palm Dhuni Kolhu for Two | Nestled on the UNESCO listed Baa Atoll and home to abundant carol and marine life, enjoy a five-night stay in a 100 sqm private villa with its pool, inclusive of all meals. Valid till 31 December 2021.

Artwork

We are often blind, so to speak, to the many good things in our lives - our eyesight, our doctors and our healthcare system in which emergency eye surgeries can be carried out within a day. In gratitude, I am donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of my art pieces featured in the online auction to Orbis. I hope you will join me in helping Orbis raise the necessary funds to continue their work to make life better and brighter for those in need.

Ng Kah Meng

A Singaporean artist whose works reflect his fascination with nature and the mysteries of the universe and are much-sought after by discerning collectors.

Memorabilia

Signed US Masters Pin Flag from Augusta framed on a custom matt board with 25 signatures of Green Jacket Winners including legends, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and many more.

Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers LP Signed By The Band | Signed by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Woods and Charlie Watts

Special Set of Seven Orbis Collectibles including our Flying Eye Hospital Construction Toy Plane that has made its debut in Singapore in May!

If art, memorabilia or Orbis’s Collectibles is not your cup of tea, bid for your favourite wine from Israel International Wine Chateau (ASEAN).

2020 was to have been the year celebrating how far we’ve come in the fight against the projected tripling of global blindness in the next 30 years. With you behind us, we are confident that this plan is still attainable.
