All religions in common preach to be humane. "Those who want to love God should first love his neighbour" is the sole teaching of Mother Teresa.
Mother Teresa Foundation is a non - government development organisation working for the unwanted, uncared and unloved in the society. It is because the most terrible poverty in the world is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved. Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity in India in 1950 for these peoples. At the time of her death, they were operating 610 missions in 123 countries, including hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis, soup kitchen, children and family counselling programs, orphanages and schools.
Mother Teresa’s Charity home in Agra is a home to quench the thirst for love, care, protection and guide the poor children for bright future. Since every child deserves a chance, the Foundation exists and works towards making this a possibility. Children who have been hitherto remained unloved, uncared, unwanted and abandoned are given parental care in this home. They are motivated to overcome the apathy and understand the feel of Love.
The Home believes that all children should be given an equal opportunity in life especially when it comes to the provision of basic needs such as Housing, Clothing, Health care and Education. The children in the Home are therefore given free shelter, clothing, proper medical care and quality education. The Home gives assistance to the children to pursue education at school level and higher education in technical institutes and colleges.
In order to promote moral values, the Foundation gives importance to spiritual activities and conducts daily prayers. There is a spiritual guardian to give proper guidance for their personality development, which enable them to live in amity and fellowship with each other.
The children in the Home are encouraged to treat each other as brothers and sisters, and share their joys and sorrows with each other, in order to create a family atmosphere among them. All these efforts are made that the children never have a feeling of loneliness or having missed someone in their life.
Mother Teresa’s Charity home in Agra is a Missionaries of Charity home. The facility, operated by the order of nuns that Mother Teresa founded, functions as an orphanage and a care facility for the chronic and terminally ill. It has 48 children who are orphaned or come from poor families who can no longer provide for them; as well as 150 infirmed adults who can no longer care for themselves. The mission is solely reliant on private donations to support their cause.
