Google doodle honors Dr. Ruth Pfau on her 90th Birthday


Google honoured Dr Ruth Pfau, the late German-Pakistani nun known as Pakistan’s ‘Mother Teresa’, on her 90th birthday with a doodle on Monday.

“Today’s Doodle celebrates Ruth Katherina Martha Pfau, born in Leipzig, Germany on this day in 1929. She devoted herself to eradicating leprosy from Pakistan, saving countless lives,” read the description published along with the visual tribute.

“Dr Pfau was inspired to become a nun at age 29 after meeting a concentration camp survivor. While traveling to India, she was waylaid in Pakistan by visa issues and paid a life-changing visit to the Marie Adelaide Leprosy Clinic in Karachi.”
