Many children living at the Mother Teresa Charitable Trust are from surrounding villages. Most of these children live with their families; however, several are orphans who have been abandoned and placed with host families in the area. More than 40 orphans and 40 elderly people are being cared for at the Mother Teresa Charitable Trust today.
The local community has embraced the people of the Mother Teresa Charitable Trust into their community. Nuns, college students, and villagers have volunteered to help take care of the residents.
