Dedicated to the world-renowned missionary who spent most of her life in Calcutta, India,  pays homage to the woman known for helping the poor, sick, and abandoned. Born in Macedonia in 1910, this Roman Catholic nun founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950, which today numbers over 4,500 people who run hospices, orphanages, and soup kitchens in 133 countries. The sculpture dedicated to her in Pristina is approximately life-sized, and features Mother Teresa in her old age, humble, with a small child by her side. Take a break in a shade nearby as you reflect on her works.

    Sometimes it's hard to see why so many political statues and so few simple figures, of the people, who gave your life for such noble causes. Best example of Mother Teresa is hard to find her I was born in this country and that has your name on the main street (pedestrian) of the city

    I did not show that Mother Teresa was from Pristina. Stopped by the Museum and then the different things that were gathered here. Missed the Peace Prize medal.
