See How a FedEx MD-10 Has Been Transformed into a Flying Eye Hospital for Orbis Int'l

Orbis International has been working since 1982 to improve eye care for the 89 percent of visually impaired people who live in low- and middle-income countries. The non-profit organization launched its third-generation Flying Eye Hospital in 2016 to train local surgeons to better care for their patients while promoting eye care and global health. Donated by FedEx, Orbis’s MD-10 freighter has been gutted and refurbished with all the equipment need to train local teams and complete eye exams and surgeries.
