Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910 - 1997), Head of the Sisters of Charity, working with some of the lepers in Calcutta, 7th December 1971. These are some of the first pictures taken of her after she was highlighted in a BBC documentary film showing her work with the poor and underprivileged of Calcutta. She is seen handing out Christmas gifts in a leper colony - the gifts are a bag of rice and a blanket. (Photo by Michael Brennan/Getty Images)
