Mother Teresa is a well-known figure worldwide. While many stories of her have been told over and over again, a lot of young ones can’t even recognize here. Here are some pictures of Mother Teresa and her life.
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.
