FedEx helps ORBIS deliver sight worldwide

For more than 20 years, FedEx (NYSE: FDX) has facilitated the humanitarian efforts of ORBIS around the world by providing financial, operational and logistical support. In 2006, FedEx and ORBIS launched the global FedEx Fellows program, which designates two ophthalmologists per year to complete one- to three-month fellowships at some of the world's leading eye institutes. This initiative was designed to complement ORBIS' existing fellowship program whereby training is matched to the particular skills and strengths of the fellows, enabling them to develop their chosen ophthalmic specialty, or in areas such as eye banking, primary eye care and hospital administration.

"These ophthalmic training fellowships target ophthalmologists from hospitals at the heart of the fight against blindness," said Bob Palmer, vice-president, FedEx Express. "By connecting the worlds of business, charity and academia, the FedEx Fellows program will make a visible difference in the quality of people's lives."

As the leading aviation sponsor for the Flying Eye Hospital, FedEx provides vital aviation maintenance support for the ORBIS aircraft and sponsors Delivering Sight Worldwide, a global public awareness program that draws attention to the extent of avoidable blindness worldwide. Delivering unwavering support, FedEx completes the annual safety check for the Flying Eye Hospital at no cost to ORBIS. In addition, FedEx pilots volunteer their time to fly the Flying Eye Hospital to medical program locations worldwide. FedEx also gives complimentary access to its powerful network providing transportation services in support of ORBIS initiatives around the
