"Stop judging!" One might have heard this phrase numerous times, but do we actually heed those words? Judging without understanding might lead to us overlooking many things in our life and we do not want that.

Ben Cheong is the Founder and Managing Director of Magical Light Foundation. His various visits to poorer countries in Southeast Asia inspired him to reach out and help the less privileged in countries such as Myanmar and Thailand. Through setting up a foundation to provide direct financial help as well as to raise awareness among Singaporeans, he has inspired many to join him in his compassionate journey. Nominated for the Singaporean of the Year Award in 2015, his compassion and empathy have enabled him to better the lives of many.
