“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean will be less because of that missing drop.”

Mother Teresa


Mother Teresa encouraged all those who desired to contribute to her work among the poor to be, if possible, directly involved in the service of the poorest of the poor by giving “their hands to serve, and their hearts to love.” She invited them to get involved in volunteering in one of our houses. Though this is desirable, it is not always possible.


Mother Teresa also welcomed the free will offerings from goodhearted and generous benefactors, on which we fully rely as we do not fundraise, nor receive any income or grants for our service to the poorest of the poor.


If you feel moved to participate, please contact one of our houses to see how you can be of help or if you feel moved to give a donation please contact:
