ORBIS International and its Canada office depends on caring individuals, companies and foundations for annual funding. Donated products and services are also of critical importance. The contributions of our corporate and foundation sponsors range from multi-year grants to donated medical products and services, as well as aviation support.
In addition, hundreds of accomplished eye care professionals volunteer their time and expertise to make ORBIS training programs possible. Individual donors from across the world share this kind, philanthropic spirit, donating millions to our sight-saving work.
