Oryx Rotana Welcomes HRH Countess of Wessex on World Sight Day
For the fourth consecutive year, Oryx Rotana Hotel hosted the blindness prevention charity organized by ORBIS UK, during their visit to Doha to mark World Sight Day. Heading the ORBIS delegation was HRH Princess Sophie, the Countess of Wessex. A patron of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), and the global ambassador for Vision 2020, HRH Princess Sophie’s visit was aimed at raising funds to reduce childhood blindness in Bangladesh. The Countess particularly committed to promoting the work and need of organizations that focus on helping and improving opportunities for children and young people with sensory, learning and communications disabilities. During the event, Princess Sophie inaugurated the donations campaign launched by ORBIS and Qatar Charity, and Oryx Rotana invited visitors as well as staff to contribute generously into the four World Sight Day donation boxes located throughout the premises.
