On the eve of the 111th birthday of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, five Missionaries of Charity arrived in Rome from Kabul with 14 disabled Afghan children. The sisters, members of the religious community Mother Teresa founded in 1950 and lived with until her death in 1997, have run an orphanage for children since 2006 in Afghanistan. It was Italy that got them out of the country as the Taliban has taken over. – from avemariaradio.net
As Mother Teresa said; If you cannot feed many, then just feed one.
“Our centre is no longer open, it is closed and we are destroyed,” a Missionary of Charity nun from Madagascar told La Repubblica. “It is done, there is no hope in Kabul.”
“I said it and I have done it,” Father Scalese told the Italian newspaper. “I would have never returned to Italy without these children. We couldn’t leave them there.”
