Fodor's Review

Mother Teresa's first home for the dying is now one of 300 affiliated organizations worldwide that care for people in the most dire need. It can be inspiring to see the joy among the people in one of the missionaries' homes or refuges. Mother Teresa is buried in this building—her home for 44 years.

Learn more about Mother Teresa's work at the headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity. 54A A. J. C. Bose Rd. 33/2464–4223.
