Send your support Orbis’s medical volunteers

2023-05-22 18:00:41

Did you know that around 40 of Orbis’s global team of volunteers are from the UK? These highly skilled professionals give up time from their day jobs as ophthalmologists, anaesthetists and nurses to save the sight of hundreds of people every year – like little Hakeema.

Of course, their health service is under a great deal of pressure right now. Many of their volunteers are currently working hard to fight coronavirus and keep us safe and well.

So Orbis wanted to offer you a way to show your encouragement and appreciation for these brilliant and brave individuals – for everything they do to keep us healthy in the UK and for their dedication in fighting avoidable blindness around the world.

If you have already sent in a message for Orbis to pass on to their medical volunteers, thank you very much. If you haven’t sent a message yet but would still like to, all you have to do is simply send a message to this email: 

Thank you so much for being part of the Orbis family in these uncertain times. Orbis really appreciates your support and they hope you and your loved ones remain safe and well.

And if you, yourself, are a key worker of any kind – Orbis salutes you.
