    STOP The Missionaries of Charity
    By: Hemley Gonzalez

    I worked as a volunteer in one of Mother Teresa’s homes for the poor in Calcutta, India for a period of two months in 2008. I was shocked to discover the horrifically negligent manner in which this charity operates and the direct contradiction of the public’s general understanding of their work.

    Workers wash needles under tap water and then reuse them. Medicine and other vital items are stored for months on end, expiring and still applied sporadically to patients. Volunteers with little or no training carry out dangerous work on patients with highly contagious cases of tuberculosis and other life threatening illnesses. The individuals who operate the charity refuse to accept and implement medical equipment and machinery that would safely automate processes and save lives.

    After further investigation and research, I realized that all of the events I had witnessed amounted to nothing more than a systematic human rights violation and a financial scam of monumental and criminal proportions.

    Not once in its sixty-year history, have the Missionaries of Charity reported the total amount of funds they’ve collected in donations, what percentage they use for administration and where the rest has been applied and how. Since its inception, defectors of the organization and other journalists have placed the figure upwards of one billion dollars (and counting.) The mission currently operates over 700 homes and maintains an average of 4,000+ workers while consistently failing to provide statistics on the efficacy of their work.

    Standing firm against planned parenthood, modernization of equipment, and a myriad of other solution-based initiatives, Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor but rather a promoter of poverty.

    It was Mother Teresa’s own admission during an interview that more than 23,000 people had died in the halls of the particular home I had worked in; as if boasting at the figure and missing entirely the point of the enormous compilation of unnecessary deaths.

    Mother Teresa also repeatedly admitted that she was not a social worker, and her followers continue to assert the same to this day. So under what motives do they tend to the poor you may ask? The mantra of the operation rests solely on the belief that suffering and poverty are ways of loving god, a seriously troubling statement to say the least.

    I have created this group and other projects to denounce the Missionaries of Charity and their work while educating unsuspecting donors about how their well-intended donations are misused on a daily basis.

    After returning home, I began a campaign to raise awareness about the issues I first experienced and the challenges the children of the slums in Park Circus face daily and thus Responsible Charity was born. Through a homegrown network of friends, family and volunteers in different regions of the world we are now beginning to gather donations which we can track and report on our website and show exactly the progress and help such funds allow us to administered to those in need. Unlike some religious-based organizations which have no progressive plans in effect to educate and empower the children, women and men out of poverty, Responsible Charity would like to make advances in areas of education, planned parenthood and self employment.

    Continuing to air these facts about Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity and similar organizations will help point donors everywhere in the world to responsible, accountable and transparent organizations instead... organizations that are truly working to empower men, women and children to overcome poverty.

    FORBES-India interviewed us and published a serious article pertaining the monumental medical negligence of this organization in August 2010, last year (the Missionaries o Charity were also interviewed in it) and as a result "The Home of the Dying" was immediately closed for "renovations" after the national circulation of the article.

    Here's the link to the article:
