History

Fatima is the name of a tranquil small town located in Portugal. The Virgin Mary first appeared to three local little children on the 13th of May 1917 in Fatima. She appeared in Fatima a number of times after this and on each visitation bought with her a message to recite the Rosary for individuals and to pray for world peace. Consequently Fatima became a famous place of pilgrimage where tens of thousands of pilgrims visited in honor of the Virgin Mary. Many were able to find peace of mind and experienced miraculous cures.

In spite of the word of the Virgin Mary asking for penitence and prayer, war has continued all over the world. For example, in Korea many experienced hardship and grief due to the Korean War 1950 - 1953. Our senior sisters who were active in religious service near Wonsan in North Korea moved southward and settled in Daegu when the war ended. They prayed to the Virgin Mary for help, and finally were able to establish ‘Fatima clinic’, in Sinam-dong, named after Fatima in Portugal. In accordance with the roots of ‘Fatima’, all of our staff in Daegu Fatima Hospital fulfill their duties in line with a message from the Virgin Mary, to do our best and so, provide the best in quality of medical service.
