Give Sight to Vietnam's Children

Orbis is currently the only charity which has helped to build Vietnam's capacity to prevent and manage childhood blindness. Currently, all six paediatric eye care centres in Vietnam are supported by Orbis.

Join us in helping Vietnam's children. Donate now and give sight.

Children with poor vision perform worse in school because they can’t see the blackboard or their textbooks. They are also often left out in play activities. We hope to give children in Vietnam a brighter future through education and improved confidence.

The money raised from this campaign will go towards our children's eyecare project in Vietnam. In Vietnam, eye conditions such as strabismus (misaligned eyes) and ptosis (droopy eyelids) are not covered under health insurance and many children do not get the treatment that they need.

We plan to produce communications materials to educate the public on children's eye conditions:

  • A video on Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Posters on children's eye condition and Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Book of children's eye care for children (7 common eye diseases)
  • Examination books for Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Training books for community health workers and teachers

We also plan to build new paediatric eye care centres and referral & outreach networks to reach children in need. This includes buying equipment, conducting community screening and subsidising surgeries. This will identify and treat children with eye conditions before they lose their eyesight permanently.

-Refurbish and equip a tertiary level Child Eyecare Centre and train medical teams to provide comprehensive, quality child eyecare services for Vietnam's children.

Please help us give children in Vietnam a brighter future.

Retinopathy of Prematurity is a blinding eye condition that affects premature or low birth weight babies.

For less than USD1 a day, your gift can educate medical teams on the severity and prevalence of ROP. You can give babies clear sight and a chance to grow up seeing their parents’ faces.

A life where they can go to school to learn and play with their friends. You can give children a chance to participate in a vibrant community, and ultimately, a brighter future.
