Mother Teresa

She had no money, but started an open-air school for homeless children. Soon other people came to help. People gave her money to help in her work. She began an order who worked to show love and care for people who had no home, no food and were sick. Her order helped many people in India. She set up many help groups for slum-dwellers, children's homes, homes for the dying, clinics and a leper colony. As the leader of her order, she was known as Mother Teresa.

Now her group works for the poor in many countries of the world. She received a number of awards for her work for peace and support for the poor.

Mother Teresa died on September 5 1997. She died in the same year as Princess Diana. Princess Diana and Mother Teresa met in India when the Princess was carrying out her work for underprivileged children.
