By Bizodisha Bureau, Bhubaneswar, December 30, 2021: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday directed the district collectors to ensure that the homes and orphanages run by the Missionaries of Charity in Odisha do not face any difficulty.

Noting that the organisation founded by Mother Teresa runs many leprosy homes and orphanages in various parts of Odisha, Patnaik asked the district authorities to ensure that no inmate suffers, especially due to lack of food or health-related issues.

“Wherever needed, funds from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund can be utilised for this purpose,” he told the district collectors, said a release from the Chief Minister’s Office quoting Patnaik as having stated.

The Ministry of Home Affairs had on Monday said the Missionaries of Charity’s application for renewal of registration under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act was refused on December 25 for not meeting eligibility conditions, as some adverse inputs were received.
