Saviour of Pakistani lepers is no more

By Muhammad Luqman
Octogenarian social worker ,Dr Ruth Pfau who was a symbol of selflessness and devotion to leprosy patients in Pakistan , has passed away in Karachi.
According to media reports, Dr Ruth had been undergoing treatment at a Karachi hospital for two weeks and passed away during surgery at 12:30am on Wednesday night.
The late Dr Ruth had come to Pakistan from Germany in 1960, and was granted Pakistani citizenship in 1988.
In 1979, she was awarded the Hilal-i-Imtiaz, the second highest civilian award of the country. In 1989, Dr Ruth was presented the Hilal-i-Pakistan.
Her last rites will be performed on August 19 at St. Patrick’s Church in Karachi’s Saddar area.
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa have expressed condolences over the death of the German Social Workers who preferred to serve the lepers in Pakistan for 57 years instead of returning to her country-Germany. She never married due to her dedication to her profession.


  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
