Orbis' Flying Eye Hospital has landed in Lusaka, Zambia, continuing their vital sight-saving training mission.
At QUAD A, we believe in changing lives and supporting communities by prioritizing patients and providers who give back. Our unwavering commitment to putting patients first drives us to create a real difference in the world. In regions like Zambia, where eye care accessibility remains a challenge, we see an opportunity to make a difference through our partnership with Orbis. Eye care should be a universal right, accessible to all, regardless of where someone lives.
While on the ground in Zambi, Orbis will provide simulation training sessions, workshops led by expert medical volunteers, and Zambian ophthalmologists. Eye care teams will gain hands-on surgical experience and training from these experts while providing life-changing care to patients on board.
When we learned that Orbis was facing a substantial fee from another accreditation organization, we recognized a moral duty to step in and support mission of providing sight-saving care free from financial obligations. Our partnership with Orbis takes us to Lusaka this year, where we stand alongside them during their re-accreditation process on October 9th.
Orbis’ decision to not only offer care in the developing world, but also to provide training for others to deliver the best and safest care reflects their unparalleled dedication to patients. The Flying Eye Hospital's mission to restore the vision of individuals from vision loss is something we wholeheartedly support, and we invite you to join us.
You can join us in being part of this meaningful experience. Your support will help Orbis continue providing vital eye care services to those who need them most. By contributing to the Educational Foundation, you play a significant role in our mission to empower Orbis and change lives. Together, we can create a brighter future for individuals and communities around the world. Visit https://www.orbis.org/en and donate directly to Orbis to give a gift that matters.
