Our driver, who is involved with this charity, took us. The sense of peace and serenity was apparent not only in the Sisters who run this charity but also in all who were there, and seemed to have transferred itself to the orphans and rejected, disabled children who live there cared for by the sisters and young girls saved from...

I feel really honoured to have been able to visit here. It's heartbreaking to see so many children and adults living here but the sisters do an incredible job of looking after them. The grounds and buildings are clean and well maintained and the children all had smiles on their faces. I let my family and friends know I was... More

I observed that Mother Teresa's homes are good as I saw clothes are drying and outer space is neat and clean. Authorities don't allow to go inside unnecessary as they say it looks making fun of the home in-mates.

A place of peace in the business of Calcutta. Visiting here allowed us to get back to reality a bit. Understanding what these sisters still do for the poor and the sick makes you realize that God cares for those less fortunate as much as He cares for us. Amazing women who are called to serve and do it with... More

You question the meaning of your life when u visit this place. the commitment and the dedication of the nuns actually make u understand the beauty and the love of mother theresa, whose life work was to help the downtrodden, sick and hungry. It is tearful to see how her great work is continuing in this beautiful place, and it... More

The unconditional love given to all without exception, provides a home where none could otherwise exist. A great place for Aussies to meet, accept and affirm others as equals, then enjoy becoming friends.

I had my tour guide take me to this place after tah mahal instead of the fort. I bought crayons and coloring books and wafer cookies to the nuns. I met with sister ambrosia which was very thankful to my visit and donation. The place is very clean and tidy. And everyone was happy . Overall I would come here... More

One of the Sister was very kind with us and let us visit all the rooms, I will never forget this moment. I gave some clothes of mine, money and candy. But feel free to bring... More

Having witnessed one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the world, how can yo not be moved to tears by what the sisters are doing in this humble abode. With no funding other than visitor donations, they provide an oasis for a small number of children who are charged to their care- some have learning difficulties ranging in... More

I was so moved by the work these sisters do with so many beautiful children, many disabled, as well as disabled adults. There are 9 sisters caring for 200, including 53 children, although they do have some helpers. Many of the children had been left at the mission's doorstep. I am a somewhat nervous (and fussy) traveler, so had prepared... More
