Your Real Champion® – Mother Teresa of Calcutta – born in 1910 Macedonia to parents of Albanian descent, founded the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, a congregation of Catholic nuns who devote their lives to care for the sick and poor. By 2012, over 4500 nuns were active in 133 countries, managing homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy, and TB… along with soup kitchens, mobile clinics, orphanages, and schools. During her 87 years, she was recognized with the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 2016, and is considered one of the 20th Century’s greatest humanitarians. Whether you are a person of faith or not, you will be moved by the poem she wrote which is engraved on the wall of her home for the children of Calcutta.
Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
