Arunachal Pradesh, October 14, 2016: The first Christian hospital of the north-eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh was inaugurated on Wednesday.  Deputy Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Chowna Mein, was the Chief Guest at the inauguration of the KBM Hospital on Oct. 12 at Injan, in Changlang District.  Named after the two French Missionaries, Frs. Nicolas Krick and Augustin Bourry of the Paris Foreign ‎Missions Society, who were martyred in 1854 in Somme Village of Arunachal Pradesh on their way to Tibet, the Krick and Bourry Memorial (KBM) Hospital had been earlier blessed and dedicated to St. Teresa of Kolkata on Sept. 8, following her Sept. 4 canonization.

Two other ministers were also present at the inauguration. Mein, a product of the Don Bosco education system, lauded the contribution of Catholic missionaries to Arunachal, especially in the field of education and healthcare.  He described Miao Diocese’s KBM Hospital as the greatest gift to Arunachal Pradesh and assured the government’s cooperation.   Mein also called on all to fight the menace of drug addiction in the eastern part of the state. Bishop George  Pallipparambil of Miao Diocese gave a brief account of Frs. Krick and Bourry, and urged all to join hands in eradicating poverty, disease and hunger.  In the making for the last five years, the KBM Hospital has blood test facilities and basic diagnosis and treatment. More equipment and tools are needed to meet the healthcare needs of the people in eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.

    It is a joy to hear that Miao Diocese, in Aurnachal, has made such progress in the interests of the poor tribal community. I had attended the inauguration of the Diocese many years ago. Today the Church is serving the poor in the field of health, which is a dire need of the area.

    May the bearers of peace and good news eradicate not only hunger and poverty but also diseases. God and humanity will bless all those serving the poor. of Miao Diocese.
    The foundation is laid down, good people from all walks of life will support all good cause for the benefit of deserving people.
