The claims surfaced in a religious journal, Religieuses, and in an intriguing article in the Times of India. Religieuses is a Canadian based publication and researchers conducted a study of over 300 documents that highlighted what type of services were provided by Mother Teresa's organization, the Order of the Missionaries of Charity.  It has been reported that the Order of the Missionaries of Charity received millions of dollars in donationsd and that 517 homes created by Mother Teresa's organization  were set up for people who were not able to afford basic neccessities.
