Ganga and her friends at school in Nepal

Eyewitness magazine

Welcome to the online version of our Eyewitness magazine! Inside this edition, you'll find: Orbis at the London Marathon 2019; Do You Know These Eye Health Facts?; Focus on the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital & Volunteering in Jamaica.

Welcome From Brenda Naluyima

Earlier this year, I had the privilege of travelling to Nepal to see some of the wonderful work that we do through the Orbis-funded REACH (Refractive Error Among Children) school vision screening programme. As a result of our recent See My Future appeal, we will be able to transform even more lives in Nepal and beyond.

In the articles below, you'll be able to find out what our Flying Eye Hospital has been up to in the first half of the year, and hear from one of our London Marathon runners about her experience of the event back in April and why she chose to support Orbis. Finally, we speak to one of our volunteer nurses about her trip to Jamaica earlier this year with the Flying Eye Hospital. Your support is so valuable, helping us to us bring clear sight to people all over the world. Thank you.

With best wishes,

Brenda Naluyima, Senior Communications Officer
