Thanks to the generosity of the Canadian-Chinese community,
the 6th annual Sights on Asia
telethon which took place on October 20, 2013 has raised over $152,000 and
counting! Funds raised through this year’s program will benefit the ORBIS Kids
Sight program initiatives in rural China, Vietnam and Nepal.
With your support, ORBIS will be able to provide resources
for communities around the world to give high-quality care to children who are
at risk of losing their sight. We are one step closer to achieving a world where
no child is needlessly blind and we couldn’t do it without you.
From all of us at ORBIS, please accept our sincere thanks!
Thank You to Our Top Donors
