During the celebration of St. Mother Teresa’s 113th birthday The Mother Teresa Foundation showcased its unwavering commitment to changing lives. As the illustrious event’s chief guest, Mr. Joe Malloori, a renowned actor known for his philanthropic endeavours, extended a heartwarming gift of mobility and self-sufficiency. This gift took the form of a wheelchair and a tailoring machine, presented to Miss. Mercy, a 43-year-old resident of Thingalur Village in Thanjavur who, despite facing immense challenges, embodies resilience and determination. The assistance was provided under The Foundation’s Community Development Program
Miss. Mercy’s journey has been marked by the trials of polio, which left her without the use of both legs. Yet, her spirit remained unbroken. The Mother Teresa Foundation recognized her indomitable will and her accomplishment of completing a tailoring course, complete with a certificate. Responding to her request and fervent desire for a means to self-sufficiency, the Foundation, through Mr. Joe Malloori, presented her with a wheelchair and a tailoring machine. These thoughtful gifts not only provide her with the mobility she deserves but also equip her with the tools to continue her tailoring pursuits, thereby offering her a source of livelihood and a newfound sense of independence.
Miss. Mercy’s story is a testament to the power of determination and the support that can change lives when it’s offered selflessly. The Mother Teresa Foundation’s act of kindness shines as a beacon of hope, demonstrating that a community can come together to uplift those who need it the most.
