The Roman Catholic order of which she is now the head has in recent years extended its activities to include a number of other Indian cities and other parts of the world. In making the award the Norwegian Nobel Committee has expressed its recognition of Mother Teresa's work in bringing help to suffering humanity. This year the world has turned its attention to the plight of children and refugees, and these are precisely the categories for whom Mother Teresa has for many years worked so selflessly.
