Here are some images from the week I spent in Ethiopia with the ORBIS Ireland charity to capture the Irish fundraisers who took part in this 10km run at 10,000 feet in Addis Ababa. I stayed on for a few days after to document some of the projects ORBIS have established.
ORBIS is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of blindness in the developing world. It is working to change this and since it was founded in 1982 it has, through the generosity of its donors, worked tirelessly to achieve its goal. Their focus is on teaching and training and since 1982 ORBIS has carried out more than 1,000 sight-saving programs and treated more than 10 million people worldwide.
