A catholic nun, born in 1910 in Skopje (current capital of Macedonia) was an inspiration for millions. She was born with a heart of gold and at a very early age, she knew that she was propelled into this world with a mission.

At her eighteen, she left her parental home and went to India (British India at that time) and joined Loreto nuns to give her services. In 1937, she took her final vows, and procured the title of Mother Teresa.

Her kind heart and generous soul made her establish the “Missionaries of Charity” in 1950 to help poor and sick people.

Mother Teresa made schools, Orphanage, soup kitchens, hospices for skimpy.

She dedicated her life to serve humanity and become a shelter for the less privileged and gruesome. She was not only the preacher of kindness but was a giver herself.
