Oryx Rotana has been a key partner of Orbis in Doha, Qatar since September 2012. In 2012, the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital landed in Doha for the first time. The crew was welcomed at the Oryx Rotana hotel and during three days hosted 400 individuals onboard the aircraft to raise awareness on Preventable Blindness.
In 2013 and 2015, HRH The Countess of Wessex visited Doha as part of an international campaign to raise awareness about the prevention and treatment of blindness. In addition to hosting the delegations during the visits, Oryx Rotana has been engaging both staff and customers to raise awareness and vital funds for a sight saving programme in Bangladesh.
