Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) was an Irish woman who moved to India to serve God.
Her work there involved rescuing young girls forced into prostitution, even though doing so put her at risk of arrest and imprisonment. She established an orphanage for them.
Her health declined in her later years, and she became essentially bedridden; but she continued to direct the mission she founded and wrote prolifically.
