On Thursday 21st April 2016, Orbis hosted their inaugural Corporate Golf Classic four ball event at Powerscourt Golf Club.
The day was a huge success with 22 teams taking part and over €7,000 being raised for our work in Ethiopia.
The funds raised from this Golf Day will have a huge impact in Ethiopia. A sight-saving surgery costs just €6 so this support will have an enormous impact on the lives of those living in the poorest regions of Ethiopia. Orbis' mission is to eliminate trachoma, a blinding and life destroying disease, from a region of 2 million people in Ethiopia. Orbis train and teach local healthcare workers to perform surgeries to reverse the affects of trachoma, distribute antibiotics, educate communities on facial cleanliness and improve sanitation and access to clean water.
