Today marks the 113th anniversary of the birth of Mother Teresa (her real name was AnjezëGonxheBojaxhiu). She was born on August 26, 1910 at the then Pop Kochina street number 14, which was located at the present Macedonia square.
She was the youngest child in the family, she had an older sister Aga and an older brother Lazar. She came from a family where the rule was to help anyone who needed help.
Teresa made the final decision to leave Skopje because she received a “call from God” at the age of 12. After 6 years, she leaves her hometown. She leaves for Dublin, Ireland, from the train station in Skopje.
In 1979, Mother Teresa received the Nobel Peace Prize for her extraordinarily wide-ranging work in helping the poor, the sick and the unfortunate all over the world.
