In order to reach out to more and more poor and needy people, Mother Teresa established various institutions such as the Missionaries of Charity Brothers in 1963, the contemplative branch of the sisters in 1976, the contemplative brothers in 1979 and the Missionaries of Charity Fathers in 1984. She also formed the Co-Workers of Mother Teresa and the Sick and the Suffering Co-Workers, which involved people from many religions and beliefs to get together for a common noble cause. She also established the Lay Missionaries of Charity and a Corpus Christi Movement for Priests in 1981 for the kind-hearted priests to contribute their share.

In 1962, Mother Teresa received the Indian Padmasree Award and in 1963 she won the Nobel Peace Prize. The entire world began to know about her work and her mission and started supporting her mission to help the poor and needy. She lived her entire life serving the sick and the poor. Though she found happiness in doing so she was never able to overcome the pain she felt for them. Even during her last years of life, though she was not healthy, she continued to manage the Society and take action to the need of the poor and the Church.

With around 4000 sisters, Mother Teresa had managed to establish 610 foundations in 123 countries around the world by 1997. She elected her successor and made her the Superior General of the Missionaries of Charity and traveled abroad to meet Pope John Paul II. She came back and spent her time with her visitors and advising her Sisters. She died on 5th September 1997 and was given the honor of a State funeral by the Government of India.

Her body was buried in the Mother House of the Missionaries of Charity. In 2003, the Holy Father sanctified Mother Teresa before an entreating crowd of about 300000 who had assembled at the St. Peter’ s Square for thanksgiving to God for the contribution of her life and devotion (Mother Theresa of Calcutta center). Nikola was a contractor by profession and a successful businessman. He bought a house and many properties in Skopje soon after he moved in from Prizren.
