Property tycoon Nina Wang has helped restore US President Bill Clinton's family home. The President's childhood home in Hope, Arkansas, will this weekend open to the public, thanks partially to a US$50,000 (HK$386,500) donation from Ms Wang, Chinachem Group chairman. The Democratic Party fund-raising inquiry had plagued the restoration of the whitewashed house where Mr Clinton spent his first four years. Joe Purvis, president of the Clinton Birthplace Foundation, said contributions dropped off after two congressional committees subpoenaed gift records, which had been private. 'The latest round of congressional activity ... hurling veiled accusations about the Clinton birthplace certainly had a chilling effect on our ability to raise money. We have not done anything improper,' Mr Purvis said. Ms Wang is believed to have pledged her donation during a private tour of the White House in December 1995. The Clinton homestead is sandwiched between a railway and supermarket on a busy street. A low-key ceremony has been planned to mark the opening of the house on Sunday. Ms Wang was unavailable for comment yesterday. Her most recent property ambition - to develop the world's tallest building, the Nina Tower in Tsuen Wan - was scrapped due to height restrictions. Her husband's family last week issued a missing persons advertisement for tycoon Teddy Wang Teh-huei who vanished seven years ago after being kidnapped.
