Mother Teresa was an Albanian Roman Catholic religious sister born in Skopje. She lived in Macedonia for about 18 years and then moved to Ireland and finally settled in India where she lived for the rest of her life. Her real name was Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. While she was born on 26 August she considered the date she was baptized on, to be her real birthday which was August 27. She was the youngest of all her siblings. According to Mother Teresa biography, she was fascinated by the stories of missionaries in Bengal when she was very young. She founded the Missionaries of charity which is a Roman Catholic religious congregation that was composed of around 4500 sisters. It was active in around about 133 countries.
The Missionaries of Charity ran hospitals and homes for HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis patients and also ran dispensaries and mobile clinics and not only that but they also had children and family counselling programs, orphanages, schools and it vowed to help the poorest of the poor with free services. Mother Teresa spent the better part of her life working for the poor and disadvantaged people and that is also the reason she was awarded the Nobel peace prize.
