AccorHotels helps Orbis combat blindness among children in China

AccorHotels in Hong Kong joined forces to back a leading charity that helps the blind and visually impaired. The Darkness to Go charity dinner raised more than HK$180,000 for Orbis.

The dinner at Novotel Hong Kong Century offered participants the unusual experience of relying on only four of their five senses ­– sound, taste, touch and smell – as their eyes were blindfolded throughout the meal. The aim of the event was to help participants reach a better understanding of the challenges faced by visually impaired people.

Michel Molliet, chief operating officer, AccorHotels Greater China, said: “Our collaboration with Orbis is part of AccorHotels’ long-standing commitment to give back to local communities.”

Mary Lau, Orbis’ director of development for mainland China and Hong Kong, added that the Darkness to Go dinners would also help the new Flying Eye Hospital, which sees doctors being flown to remote areas, such as Shenyang in northern China, to help combat blindness among children.
