We were invited by Orbis, a UK based NGO to experience a dinner blindfolded at the Rotana Oryx hotel, doha. The initiative is called Qatar Creating vision.
The aim of the blindfolded dinner was to have us feel what the blind feel on a daily basis, and experience how life is when you are fully dependent on other individuals, be it family members or friends.

The Qatar Creating Vision initiative has stormed past our first quarter targets by over 20%, to provide 585,501 eye tests for children across India and Bangladesh. The programme, led by international eye care charity Orbis, brings together three charities and 19 hospitals with the aim of providing 5.5 million child eye tests and treatments within the two countries, before 2020.
