Orbis – the flying eye hospital

Orbis (Saving sight worldwide) project in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. 2003

I had forgotten about Orbis until I saw an advert for it recently in The Atlantic Monthly.  What a great idea.  A converted DC-10 acts as a flying eye hospital and teaching centre.  The objective of the charity is to help the blind in the poorest parts of the world.
