Excerpt from the article:

In 1993, Chen Ming, whose ancestral home is in Fujian Province, became involved with the Chung Shan Association in the United States and paid his first visit to Zhongshan. When he visited Zhongshan City People’s Hospital’s ophthalmology department, he was shocked by the shabby medical equipment at that time. He promised, “I will try my best to help Zhongshan City People’s Hospital to catch up with the advanced level in ophthalmology and equipment in the US.”

Since then, Chen Ming has visited Zhongshan every year, instructing on eye treatment technology and treating patients for free. He donated ophthalmic medical equipment valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars to Zhongshan City People's Hospital, and was praised by Zhongshan people as ‘bright messenger’. 

Now he is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a professor at Queen's Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, a consultant and a visiting professor of ophthalmology at Zhongshan City People's Hospital. He was awarded the title ‘Honorary Citizen’ of Zhongshan in 2013.

Because of him, Zhongshan City People's Hospital has made tremendous progress in medical care, its ophthalmic treatment technology in particular is now close to the current most advanced standards.

Furthermore, Chen Ming also helped a great lot in a transnational rescue between the two cities.
