Mother Teresa's Net Worth At The Time Of Her Death May Surprise You

 

Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun and missionary. She is famous for her charitable works and helping the poor, hungry and sick people of India. A nun is  a person who decides to serve God. Nuns often live together in a place called a convent. They spend their whole life doing the work of God and helping people in their communities. Mother Teresa wanted to be a teacher and she hoped that by helping girls learn to read and write, she could help stop them being so poor. In September 1946, Mother Teresa was on a train journey when she received a message from God. She said that God told her to leave the school she worked in and go to work with the poor and sick people. Mother Teresa helped people who were uncared for and forgotten about. She also opened a school for the poor and a orphanage which looked after children who were homeless and had no families. In 1979, Mother Teresa was given the Nobel Peace Prize for all her years of helping, caring and hard work. Sadly, Mother Teresa died in 1997 and people all around the world were sad to hear about her death. 

We are proud to be named after such an inspirational woman who helped so many people in need.
