Leave a lasting legacy

By leaving a gift to Orbis in your will, you’ll be leaving a lasting legacy of sight for thousands of people all over the world. You’ll give the gift of a brighter future, the increased chance of getting an education and opportunity to earn an income to support their families.

Why is a gift to Orbis in your will so important?

Our community of incredible legacy pledgers all share one vision – to create a world free from avoidable blindness. This commitment, and the invaluable funds you can contribute, will help to save and protect the sight of so many people. In doing so, you will help to transform lives one by one, until no one is needlessly blind.

Simply put, a gift in your will to Orbis will sustain life-changing long-term programmes to save sight and improve access to eye care for all.

The lasting impact you’ll have

By leaving a gift to Orbis in your will you can help train and mentor eye care teams to save sight and transform lives in their communities. Your gift could also help raise awareness of eye conditions and eye care services in communities, and strengthen our partnerships with hospitals, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and governments to improve eye care provision at both the local and national level.

By equipping eye care professionals with the skills to screen for and treat eye conditions, providing communities with the knowledge to seek help when they need it, and developing a health care system that recognises the importance of eye care, you will be sharing in our comprehensive and sustainable legacy of high-quality care and give the gift of sight for generations to come.
