What We Can Learn From The Blind

Despite having perfect vision his entire life, tragedy struck at the age of 40 for Stevens Chan when he begun to gradually lose his sight to glaucoma, going completely blind five years and nine operations later. Stevens eventually founded the Malaysian chapter of Dialogue in the Dark, a social enterprise which empowers the blind to make a living independently while creating public awareness. We speak to him today to find out more about the work they do and their latest exhibition in KLCC.
