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.
