National Flight Centre (NFC) based at Dublin Weston Airport announced it has nominated Orbis Ireland as its Charity Partner for 2023.

Orbis is a humanitarian organisation committed to preserving and restoring sight in the developing world through training eye care personnel and strengthening the capacity of in-country eye care institutions and services.

Through a participatory and community needs-based approach, Orbis serves as a catalyst to stimulate the development of sustainable eye care services and improve the quality and accessibility of eye care in those parts of the world where the need is greatest.

NFC Director Declan O’Shea, said “We are excited to support Orbis in the important work they do to ensure every one has access to quality eye care, no matter where they live. To kick off our support, all sales of our Boeing 737 Simulator Vouchers, for the next 6 months, will be donated to Orbis. We are planning several aviation themed fund raising events throughout 2023 and we look forward to working with our students, partners and supply chain to support specific Orbis projects.”

Orbis Development Director ​Diane Weatherup, said “We are delighted to welcome National Flight Centre, one of Europe’s longest-established Pilot Academies, to Orbis as a Corporate Partner. In countries like Ethiopia, where healthcare facilities are scarce and poverty rampant, blind and visually impaired people constitute some of the most neglected sections of society. I want to thank everyone at the National Flight Centre for believing in the importance of Orbis’ mission and for their support and dedication. Your support will ensure Orbis can continue to treat and prevent blindness where the need is the greatest.”
