An impact created by the demise of a caring soul is felt for ages to come.
I found out today that Dr Ruth Pfau, who devoted more than 60 years of her life fighting leprosy in Pakistan, passed away last night after long illness.
She was the prominent fighter against leprosy in Pakistan and it was solely due to her continuous efforts that number of leprosy patients in Pakistan decreased from 19,398 in the early 1980s to 531 in 2016, an achievement many believed wasn’t possible.
