By Sajeer Shaikh | 10 Aug, 2017

The savior and hero of Pakistan’s leprosy patients, Dr. Ruth Pfau, has unfortunately passed away.

Dr. Ruth Pfau passed away due to age-related illnesses.

Dr. Ruth Pfau was a German nun who traveled to Pakistan with the will and passion to help those in need.

In 1960, she decided that she wanted to help those suffering from leprosy in Pakistan, after visiting a leprosy colony in Karachi. She dedicated fifty years of her life in trying to combat the disease in Pakistan. Her hard work eventually led to the formation of The Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre.


Pakistanis have been left absolutely heartbroken after learning about her death. They have taken to social media to express their grief over the matter.

Imran Khan remembered Dr. Ruth Pfau in his message

Sherry Rehman rightly stated how we ought to be grateful to Dr. Ruth for her hard work

Aseefa Zardari also talked about Dr. Ruth and her service to the country

Reham Khan mentioned how people like Dr. Ruth are an inspiration for ex-pats to return to Pakistan

She was rightly termed a legend

And was referred to as the ‘light to Pakistan’s lepers’

 She was also called an angel

And her true spirit of patriotism was remembered as well

Overall, her passing away was also called a great loss for humanity

Truly, Dr. Ruth’s passing away is a huge loss for Pakistan. We can only hope that others are inspired by her hard work and choose to continue her mission.
