Long Vacation: A documentary about Dr. Noordhoof’s 40 years devotional life in Taiwan

“With my two hands I've attempted to heal others with love, whether it is their heart, spirit, or body that is damaged.”

Dr. Samuel Noordhoff, founder of Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation was an American missionary who came to Taiwan in 1959.

“In 1976, Dr. Noordhoff became Director of Chang Gung Hospital Taiwan. He started the Reconstructive Surgery Department. At that time, the department had only four doctors. He told Ray Chen that they were going to become the biggest in the world on an island nation. In 1976, Taiwan had a poor economy. So what the Reconstructive Surgery Department has today is his dream come true……” In the winter of 1989, Dr. Noordhoff donated US$100,000 of his hard-earned life savings to establish the Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation.

In 1999, when Dr Noordhoff said he was retiring to the US. Friends, patients and students were sad to see him go. But he worried about the Craniofacial Center and the Foundation he started, and how it would keep growing after his departure.

This remained on his heart.....

Quoting Mark Twain: Make your vocation your vacation. He loved his 40-year vacation in Taiwan. His heart for the Craniofacial Center and the Foundation never wavered.”

“Long Vacation” is a  documentary NCF produces which tells the stories of Dr. Noordhoof's 40 years devotional life in Taiwan.
