Trip Reviews

1. Visit Orbis’s partner hospital and medical network

Under a five-year sight-saving project, Orbis is collaborating with The National Centre for Maternal and Child Health in Ulaanbaatar to provide children’s eye care in Mongolia. Student Ambassadors had observed the screening procedures with the comprehensive guide of Orbis Volunteer Faculty. Student Ambassadors had also visited the post-operation patients and spent a joyful time with them.

2. Patient home visits

Student Ambassadors have visited two patients during the journey. The two boys of 4 year-old and 16 year-old have been recovered from Cataract. They are grateful to have their visual became much clearer a week after the surgery. Student Ambassadors had prepared and carried several games and activities out with the patients.

3. Visit Orbis Flying Eye Hospital

As Orbis Flying Eye Hospital (FEH) was undertaking a three-week program in Mongolia during the mission trip, Student Ambassadors had the honour to visit and tour around the FEH with the guide of Orbis staff and knew more about Orbis sight-saving work in the globe. They had also shared their efforts for Orbis throughout the past year in the FEH classroom to the crew.

4. Blindfold activities

Student Ambassadors had had a blindfold lunch to experience the daily life of the visually impaired.
