Needed – Organisers for the DC ORBIS Blindfold Lunch

Posted by Peter MUIR

DC is hoping to this year host an ORBIS Blindfold Lunch, and is looking for astudents to organize it.  To be held before May 2013, the event will involve our some of our primary students experiencing what it is like to eat food they can’t see. The event aims to increase participant’s understanding of the difficulties facing millions of preventably blind people worldwide and why they need to safeguard their own eyesight.

Last year over 3,000 students across Hong Kong participated in the event, raising their own awareness as well as over HK$120,000 for the sight saving work of ORBIS.

The DC student organisers would be involved in planning and running all aspects of the event.  Resources will be available form ORBIS to assist event preparations.  This is open to students in Years 9-12.  Ask Mr Muir for more details on how you can be involved.  Otherwise click here to sign up today, or sign up on the DC Community Engagement sign up page.
