Behind every NGO is a team of dedicated staff working tirelessly in the background. We feature the stories of the people behind the NGOs supported by The D. H. Chen Foundation. Compassion is at the heart of the Foundation's values. Each of the individuals we interview share their thoughts on compassion and what it means to them in their field of work.
Suet (雪 - “snow”)

“Compassion applies everywhere. If like me, you are visually sensitive, it can be expressed through art, too.”
Cheung (昌 - “flourish”)
Service Development Supervisor (服務發展主管)
"Compassion, to me, is about setting aside the tendency to compare and being with the other person in their own space and emotions fully."
Bo (保 - “protect”)
Administrative Worker ( 行政 工作人員)
"Compassion to me means stepping into someone else’s shoes and acting accordingly to meet their needs."
Outreach Worker (外展工作者)
"Empathy and compassion should not exist only between people with the same values; true compassion is universal."
