In 1966 Father Yves Moal, then just 25 years old, sailed from the port of Marseilles. After more than a month at sea, the French priest made landfall in Hong Kong, then transferred to a ship bound for Taiwan. Embracing the island with love in his heart, he eventually took up a position in Yuli, Hualien County, where he has aided the homeless and the disabled by helping them recycle resources. Throughout his career, he has based his ministry on the belief that we are all God’s children, none of whom should be cast aside.
