KNUTSFORD, England, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading in-flight entertainment provider helps eye charity spread the word about the finance it needs for new Flying Eye Hospital.

IFE Services, a leading in-flight entertainment (IFE) provider, today announced that it has helped produce a new promotional film for the sight saving charity, ORBIS.

ORBIS prevents and treats blindness by providing quality eye care to transform lives. The international charity delivers the tools, training and technology necessary for local partners to develop their own capacity to provide eye care services that are affordable, accessible and sustainable.

At the heart of ORBIS's efforts is the Flying Eye Hospital - the world's only airborne eye health training and surgical centre. The Flying Eye Hospital has conducted eye health treatment and training programs in more than 77 countries since 1982.

The promotional film, for which IFE Services offered their post production facilities free of charge, aims to inform people about the ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital and the need for funds to finance a new plane that will continue this sight saving legacy. The film is currently being used during one-to-one meetings with current and prospective supporters of the charity to update them on the next generation Flying Eye Hospital project.

"It's a real privilege to help ORBIS get their very deserving message out to more people," said Andy McEwan, CEO of IFE Services. "They do a fantastic job of bringing sight to people in some of the most challenging parts of the world and we hope this new promotional film will help them generate the funding they need to continue their excellent work."
