Dipl: (Dr Ruth was symbol of German Pakistan friendship: Envoy)

ISLAMABAD: On the demise of Dr. Ruth Pfau, the ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Martin Kobler passed his heartfelt condolences and sympathies to the representative of the Maria Adelaide Leprosy Centre, founded by Dr. Pfau in 1962.

“With great concern we have got the sad massage of the death of Dr. Ruth Pfau. She was a devoted Christian nun and a member of the society of Daughters of the Heart of Mary.

We are losing with her an important symbol of the German Pakistan friendship. Her services will never be forgotten.”

Dr. Ruth Pfau had been living in Pakistan since 1960. She decided to stay in Pakistan seeing the suffering of leprosy patients and spent more than 50 years to fight leprosy.

With her efforts the WHO in 1996 could declared Pakistan one of the first countries in Asia to have controlled leprosy. She was awarded with several Awards of Pakistan and Germany.
