Indian-born Mother Theresa, named Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, was a Catholic nun known for her ministry to the poor, sick, orphaned and dying. She started "The Missionaries of Charity" — an order focused on providing help, love and care to the world's most destitute people and to bring relief to those who need it during times of disaster and hardship.

Mother Theresa won the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, among others, although she continually redirected focus to her faith and didn't care for personal recognition.
