Former U.S. president, Disciples dedicate hospital wing in Nanjing

A delegation of Disciples joined President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter in Nanjing, China to unveil a statue of Dr. Edward Macklin and dedicate a new wing at the Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital. Dr. Macklin was a Disciples missionary from Canada, starting schools and providing medical care in the Nanjing area. The Drum Tower Hospital began as an opium addiction clinic in 1892 with an initial gift of $5,000. Today, the hospital has over 3,000 doctors and nurses, 3,000 beds and is the leading teaching hospital of Western medicine in China.

In his remarks, Carter praised the Christian mission personnel who opened the hospital, while also honoring the nine Disciples' mission personnel who remained on the ground during the Japanese invasion, December 1937-January 1938. Read more
