• Description

James Chen is chair of Wahum Holdings in Nigeria and the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, but he is probably best known as founder of the Clearly campaign to eradicate preventable poor vision globally. The areas of his philanthropic work might appear mainstream - education and healthcare - and the resources at his disposal modest, but the development of what he calls domain expertise and the catalytic use of those resources has had a remarkable impact. He explains his approach to Charles Keidan and spells out why correcting eyesight should be central to the world's Sustainable Development Goals.
