Donate Money

Make a Charitable Donation

Together with us, you can donate to charity and change lives with your gift of sight. Simply donate online, or donate money via mobile wallets, mail, phone or credit card. You can also set up a monthly donation plan, or make a single charitable donation as you wish.

Orbis is an international eye care non-profit organization that transforms lives around the world by preventing and treating avoidable blindness. All funds you make as donations to us will help strengthen our international sight-restoration efforts. Also, if you donate money, it will enable us to continue expanding much-needed professional medical training and eye care education programs to better help those in need.

In fact, 75% of all visual impairment could be effectively treated or prevented. With 253 million people visually impaired or blind around the world, that's around 190 million people who should be able to see if they can receive proper glasses or surgery - the privilege of eye care services that many simply take for granted. With your kind support in charitable donations, the Orbis volunteer medical team can further help build up the resources and specific skills needed to deliver quality eye care service in hard-pressed regions around the globe, and help ensure no one loses their sight just because of where they are living, or where they were born.

Choose Your Method of Donation

Donate to charity in a fast, simple, one-off fashion can already make a significant difference in bringing hope of sight to the blinded. With the advent of technology, digital wallets including AlipayHK, PayMe, WeChat and Octopus App have all made donating money much easier, faster and more secure than before. Of course, any donation in Hong Kong via offline channels or at convenience stores are also most welcomed, and these tax deductible donations will go a long way in helping us fulfill our mission here at Orbis.

Donor's Corner

According to current tax regulations, accumulated charitable donations amounting to HK$100 or above annually can be counted as tax deductible donations in Hong Kong. Our team at Orbis will issue annual receipts for all monthly tax deductible donations during the month of April for each year to our monthly supporters (please do specify the name on receipt if it is different from the donor).

You can choose from four currencies for your donation in Hong Kong to Orbis:

Renminbi (RMB)

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)

Macanese Patacca (MOP)

Taiwan Dollar (TWD)

For monthly donations in HK, you can choose from three monthly donations programs:

Orbis Friends: Donors can choose from the following donation amounts for their Orbis Friends program - HK$50, HK$120, or HK$250.

Kid Sight Friends: For the Kid Sight Friends program, donors have the following options - HK$50, which will go into subsidizing strabismus surgeries (1 child per year), HK$120, which will go into subsidizing cataract surgeries (5 children per year), or HK$500, which will fund a trachoma surgery.

Partners In Sight: You can make a monthly charitable donation of $500 to join Orbis' Partners In Sight program. The tax deductible donation will go a long way towards supporting Orbis' Flying Eye Hospital for improved training of amateur eye care professionals and subsidized surgeries for those who need them the most.

Monthly donation in Hong Kong members will get the following benefits:

  • An eye examination at a PolyVision Eyecare Centre of your choice for a discounted price of HK$400
  • Annual Orbis souvenirs and charitable donation certificates
  • Exclusive invitations to sight-saving field trips, tours of the Flying Eye Hospital, eye care talks, and various other activities of Orbis

About Donating Money to Our Charity – Faqs:

1. Can I contribute to Orbis apart from a donation in HK?

Yes, it's not just your tax deductible donations that can help us in our efforts to improve global eye care services, but also your skills. If you're interested in playing a part in our activities around the world, reach out to us, and if you fit the bill, we'll welcome you to the team. Your role will also be assigned to you depending on what you want to do. For instance, enrolment forms for individual volunteers, group/corporate volunteers, and eyecare event co-organizers are different. You may also be assigned tasks as an outdoor volunteer, a photographer, or an office staff based on your strengths.

2. In which countries is Orbis active?

Orbis is active across various continents. Asian countries where Orbis is heavily-involved in voluntary work include the likes of China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and India. Orbis' presence has also been felt in Africa, where it has worked in several countries like Ghana, Cameroon, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Malawi, Ethiopia, and Zambia. In Latin America, Orbis has contributed to the development of eye care services in the countries of Guyana and Peru. All in all, Orbis is presently involved in over 70 projects spanning 19 countries. So, if you're looking to donate to charity or contribute as a volunteer, there are plenty of opportunities through Orbis.

3. Is Orbis involved in fundraising activities?

Yes, Orbis participates in multiple activities that encourage charitable donations every year with the aim of putting up a collective fight against avoidable eye diseases and blindness. For instance, in 2020, Orbis organized the Kids Sight Carnival 2020, which was held across two venues - Plaza Hollywood and D-PARK. Both events were huge successes and featured charity sales, stage performances, hand paintings, photo ops, DIY workshops, and game booths. Another annual charitable donation event, Moonwalkers, requires participants to walk blindfold. The experience often changes participants' perspectives on blindness, as it provides insights into the difficult lives of the blind. Walk For Sight is yet another annual event that sees participants walking in natural surroundings. It promotes the importance of exposing the eyes to nature's beauty and also discourages excessive use of mobile devices.

4. I want donors to donate money to my initiative in Hong Kong. Can Orbis help?

Yes, Orbis can help your donate to charity initiatives or events to be a success. Orbis, apart from providing personalization features for Hong Kong fundraising sites, also offers tracking reports for donation in HK along with a user-friendly email for outreach activities. Some of the benefits of these services and features include reduced administration costs, less stress, increased effectiveness of all activities, and more fulfilled charitable donation pledges. There are two options that Orbis provides for users who are organizing an event - one for charity efforts of schools, religious groups, clubs, and/or companies, and another for pledging funds on the occasion of a celebration such as wedding, birthday, or birthday.

5. Which companies serve as Orbis' global partners?

Orbis' list of global partners is quite long and features some highly-reputed names. FedEx, Alcon Foundation, Jebsen, Fondation L'Occitane, Pfizer, and Omega are some of the names associated with Orbis on the global stage.
