Google remembers Dr Ruth Pfau with doodle on her 90th birthday

Google paid tribute to Dr Ruth Pfau, the late physician and nun who devoted her life to fighting leprosy in Pakistan, with a doodle on her 90th birth anniversary on Monday.
Dr Pfau, who was German by birth, had been sent to Pakistan in 1960 by the Daughters of the Heart of Mary — a congregation of nuns that she was a member of — for a medical service for students.
After witnessing the plight of leprosy patients, she decided to settle here. She was granted Pakistani citizenship in 1988.
One of the founders of the Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre (MALC) in Karachi, Pfau managed to set up a network of 157 medical centers that treated thousands of people.
In 1979, she was awarded the Hilal-i-Imtiaz, the second-highest civilian award of the country. In 1989, Dr Pfau was presented the Hilal-i-Pakistan for her services.
