Agnes (later to become Mother Teresa) was born in Skopje, Macedonia. She was raised to love God and love others above all else , and from an early age, she knew she wanted to dedicate herself to religion, so she became a nun.

She travelled to Ireland, and then to India, where she worked hard to help all those around her . She taught in a school, but realised she could do more, and so she founded a hospital in an old temple, where she fed and cared for the poor and the sick.
