I knew Mother Teresa was incredible person who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. However, I did not know about Mother Teresa in detail. I wanted to find out about Mother Teresa and did so. I am going to write information about Mother Teresa and I hope you will know about Mother Teresa.
Mother Teresa grew up in 1910 in “the Republic of Macedonia”. She hoped to be a sister and dedicate herself to poor people in her childhood. But, she was so young that she could not join a group of sisters. At the age of 18, she joined a group of sisters in Ireland. After a few months of training, she became able to go to India. When she started to working as a teacher in India, she was had an impact by the poverty of Calcutta and began a new order called “The Missionaries of Charity”. She went through the Bengal famine in 1943 and the Hindu/ Muslim violence in 1946. For many years, Mother Teresa and other sisters survived on a little money and food. In1952, she built the house for people who waited for death, which called “the home for the dying”. Mother Teresa spent many times with people who were dying. Thanks to it, many people who were neglected could die knowing that someone cared. Mother Teresa’s work became worldwide. She decided to reach out both those who believed in Catholic and those who didn’t so. In 1965, Mother Teresa’s activities spread more and her charity group was admitted as “International Religious Family”. In 1979, Mother Teresa was given the Nobel Peace Prize as the symbol of human love. In 1997, Mother Teresa died at the age of 87(Biography Online).
Mother Teresa conducted “The Missionaries of Charities” expect for “the home for the dying”. She built a school without a building. Between 1950s and 1960s, she created facilities for health of people and children. In 1971, Mother Teresa went to New York City to open her first American-based house. In 1982, she aided children without regard to faith’s difference between Christian and Muslim in Beirut and Lebanon. In 1985, she provided people who got HIV/AIDS “Gift of Love which was the house they could fight against HIV/AIDS.
Mother Teresa left many words until she died. For example, she said “Give forever love to people” and “I hope peace, agreement and love will come in this world”. I think she is one of a best person who loved people and hoped for peace. I want to love people and hope for peace of the world like Mother Teresa.
