The 2016 Christmas project is Heng Chun Christian Hospital. In the wake of Super Typhoon Meranti, our HEARTS are moved to SERVE our ‘neighbors’ in Heng Chun, Taiwan. The hospital’s medical services are vital in southern Taiwan, and they need our support to fully recover and rebuild. In order to raise our goal of 700,000 N.T. we want EVERYONE to get involved.
Super Typhoon Meranti slammed into Taiwan on September 14, 2016 and brought 113 miles per hour winds and heavy rains to the Heng-Chun Township. Heng-Chun Christian Hospital (HCCH) was extensively damaged by the high winds and flooding caused by this super typhoon. The high winds destroyed parts of their roof, water towers and air conditioner systems which resulted in heavy loss and damage to equipment and facilities within the hospital. The hospital estimates that damages will amount to at least NT $7 million for reconstruction. The hospital’s urgent needs include the replacement of the central air system and rehabilitation equipment.
In response to this catastrophe, the hospital is urging the public to help by praying for the work and donating funds for reconstruction.

From 1956 to Now…
In 1956, Medical Missionaries from Europe and Finland crossed the ocean by ship, landed the tiny town of Hengchun, set up a medical clinic in a Japanese-style tatami house and began treating the sick. Because of an increasing demand for medical services, in June of 1967, the “Hengchun Christian Clinic” was opened. In 1979, a number of newly graduated physicians joined the ranks which allowed the Finnish missionaries to pass the baton, and the “Chinese Medical Mission” took over the operation of the hospital.
Today, the HCCH provides health care for countless individuals. The Hospital specializes in services for the elderly, rehabilitation, and continues to provide a free monthly medical clinic to those in the nearby villages.
Mission: To fulfill Jesus’ command “love your neighbor as yourself ”
And provide Taiwan residents complete holistic healing to body and soul
Vision: Medical, caring, sustainable Community Christian Hospital

1956年，歐洲，芬蘭宣教士遠渡重洋，在南台灣的小鎮恆春上岸，設立日式榻榻米醫療處所，開始行醫。因著醫療需求日增，恆春基督教診所於1967年6月成立了。就在1979年，有幾位剛從學校畢業的醫生加入服事行列，因此芬蘭的宣教士們得以將交棒給新生代，由 ”中華醫療事工“ 接手醫院的管理。
