Continuing Mother Teresa’s Work


Do you want to change children’s lives the way Mother Teresa did?

We all want to be that positive change in someone’s life. Not all of us are cut out for the kind of work she did. Most people aren’t ready to travel to a foreign land and directly help, no strings attached and for no reason other than helping.

We’d all love to contribute something of ourselves to the effort. That’s where an organisation like the Mother Theresa Children’s Foundation comes in.

The MTCF is one of the many charities that are continuing Mother Teresa’s good work. Their focus is on the children, helping organise outreaches to change lives for the better.

The goal is to provide an active programme to provide children with the opportunity to go to school. At the same time, they also help mothers learn how to care better for their kids. Without their help, many of these children would never have a chance to receive an education.

The foundation has done a lot of work to bring children to better health.

Apart from education, they are also taking it upon themselves to save kids who are dying because they can’t access the right treatment or medication.

Orphans and other children get hot meals and a roof over their heads. They live up to Mother Teresa’s example of providing homes and care for these people when no one else will.

One goal of the foundation is building on Mother Teresa’s work. This objective means they don’t want just to give charity, but to find a sustainable, working solution. The organisation seeks to better the lives of children and their families, not make them dependent on welfare and handouts.

However, like Mother Teresa, they can’t do it alone.

Charities need money to get the job done, and that’ where you come in. Yes, you can’t donate your time and energy – we all have lives, and for most of us, that’s more important. You can probably spare a little now and then, though.

A little, now and then, is all MTCF – or Mother Teresa herself – ask.

Looking after children

Mother Teresa the beautiful saint she was, looked after everyone. No matter their age, their colour, their gender, race, age or political views. She was a loving a caring woman who put herself out there for others.

What was even better was that Mother Teresa was not formally trained. She used all of her own knowledge and life experiences combined with the knowledge and experience of others to care for those she came across. She did not go and complete an aged or child care course. She didn’t study as an intern along side of a doctor, or spend hours reading books. She got in there, did what was needed to be done, and learnt along the way.

Did she make mistakes? Of course she did, but she quickly learnt how to recover from them, and apply her learnings into the next lot of care she took on. It was with her experiences, her dedication and her love for helping others that would be the medicine of magic to heal and help others including children, adults, male and female.

Who did she help?

Mother Teresa helped everyone in need, in all different forms.

Whether it was helping children, helping middle aged people or helping the elderly. Male or Female, those in sickness and in health.

Mother Teresa helped those who had no where to sleep, by providing them with homes for them to stay and live in, so that they had sufficient shelter over their heads.

She helped those that had no food to eat. She would remove those grumbling tummies by providing soup kitchens for everyone to have a feed.

She would look after and care for those with AIDS and HIV, by providing basic treatments and relief methods, and assisting with birthing as well.

For children and groups she provided counselling services for them to have a shoulder to lean on, someone to share with and a support to learn from and be encouraged by.

Mother Teresa didn’t need any certifications to do what she did. She just did it. These days a similar story cannot really be told however, especially in Western Countries. To work with children or to work in aged care you need a ‘Certificate III‘ from an authorized provider (click on the link for an example)

Well Mother Teresa certainly didn’t have one, and this does not go against what these certifications provide, it is simply a means of showing that she just dedicated herself to her practice without any formalities.

People in today’s society will often only enter a practice in something if they have invested into it, or it is what they are qualified in. None the less, She helped lots of people from all walks of life.
