Mother Teresa is an internationally renowned nun, known for her vast charity work and devotion to religion. Born in Macedonia, she grew up in an Albanian family. At eighteen, she left her family to become a nun after realizing her role for the world. Mother Teresa then became a teacher, but left to serve those less fortunate. Later, she formed the Missionaries of Charity, the organization that would later help thousands of people around the world. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II and was recognized as “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta”. She devoted her life to helping others. By the time of her death, the Missionaries of Charity had 610 missions in over 100 countries, with hospices and homes for the sick and elderly. Today, Mother Teresa’s legacy of charity and kindness never leaves us, and there are multiple establishments in her name. Her organizations and hospices continue to help those in need today.
