CORPORATE PARTNERS IN AFRICA
Orbis Africa is grateful to our corporate sponsors for their support. This support means the world to those whose lives have been affected by severe visual impairment or blindness. These contributions range from major multi-year cash grants to critically needed gifts-in-kind for Orbis Africa medical training programmes. Orbis Africa’s corporate and foundation sponsors visibly share our long-term commitment to ending avoidable blindness throughout Africa.
