Here is provided information on the Missionary/missionaries of Charity established by Mother Teresa in Calcutta.

Missionary of Charity

On the 7th of October in the year 1950, Mother Teresa got the Vatican permission to start the missionary of charity in Calcutta, the mission of which would be to take care of the poor, needy, crippled, homeless, and people who are shunned by the society. The missionary has got a number of branches all over the country. The journey of Mother Teresa's missionaries of charity started with the setting up of home for 'the Dying' in space.

Mother Teresa Missionary of Charity started at a small level with 13 members. However, things have changed now. Today, the missionary has a wide network containing thousands of nuns that are running charity centers, orphanages and AIDS hospices etc. The missionaries run schools to provide education to the street children. For them, the facility of soup kitchen is also available that offers food at subsidized rates.

The missionary of charity in Calcutta runs nine homes like homes for women, the dying, orphans and many more. It has also established a colony for the lepers. In the year 1990, Mother Teresa was asked to resign from the post of head of the missionaries. But, in a short span of time, she was voted back as the Superior General of the missionaries. Later, on the 13th of March in the year 1997, as in six months before the death of Mother Teresa, Sister Mary Nirmala Joshi was appointed as the new Superior General.
