Dr. William Wan, PhD

Secretary General, Singapore Kindness Movement and
Chairman, Prison Fellowship Singapore

Dr. William Wan (Secretary General of Singapore Kindness Movement, Chairman of Prison Fellowship Singapore) shares how one film maps out the necessity of mercy and grace — virtues that offer second chances for those in need.
