The Savior of Humanity! Ruth Fow

           


       Hey  lovely  fellows ,

        hope   and  pray   that   all   of   you  are  enjoying  the   view   of   your   lives   by   looking   through   the 

 WINDOW   OF   GRATITUDE!    and  realizing   that   no   matter   how  bad   the   weather  is   and   no   matter   how   dull   the   mood   you   have   right   now   there   are  numerous   people   in   this   world   who   are    suffering   with    serious   and   bigger   problems   than   you  and   still   are   more   grateful   for   what   God   has   given   them  .



Last    night   we   heard   in   news    about   a   German   lady  doctor   Ruth   pfow   who   died  in  age   of  87   on  10th   of  August   in  Agha  Khan   Hospital   Karachi   while  dealing   with   many   health   issues.

Doctor's   put  her  on   ventilator  but  she   requested  to   remove   it  because   she   wanted   to  live   through    natural   resources. 

Doctor   Ruth   fow   was  a nun   and   dedicated   her  life   for   the   patients   who   suffered   with   leprosy .   She   born   in  1929   in  German  city  Leipzig . Her   house   was  ruined   during  second   world   war   and  she   moved  to  the  west   Germany  and  chose  medicine  as  career .


In  1957  she   joined  Catholic   order  as  she  was greatly   influenced  by  a  German  book"Lord" by  Romano  Guardini .

Order  sent   her  in  southern   India  later  .She   came   to   Pakistan   's   biggest   city   Karachi  in  1960 .  
She   travelled  in   distant   areas   of  country  .She   saw   people   who  were  abandoned  from  their   families  for   leprosy .She   decided  to   help   those   people .



In   age   of  31   1960   she   decided  to   stay   in   pakistan   and  serve   the   miserables  .In   1963   she    founded   a   Marie  Adelaide   Leprosy   Center   in   Karachi   where  patients  came   from  all   over   the   country  even   from  Afghanistan   .In   1979   she   was  appointed   Health  advisor  in  health   ministry   by   govt  of  Pakistan .  Through   her   struggles   she   collected   the   donations   from   Pakistan   and  Germany .



She   received   many   awards  and  citizenship   of  Pakistan  in  order   to  acknowledgment   of  her  services    .Due   to   her   continues   efforts   in  1996    The   World   Health   Organization   declared  Pakistan  one   of   the  first   country   in   south   Asia   who   have   controlled  leprosy!



On   19th  August   her   body  lay  in  state  ahead  of  state  funeral   which   was   held  in  Saint   Patrick's  Cathedral .  Her   coffin   was   draped   in  Pakistani   flag   and  19   gun  salute  was   offered   by   contingents  of   all   three   Armed  forces  of   Pakistan .   the   ceremony  was   broadcast  live  on  national  t.v.


Dear  friends  hope  you  like   my   sharing  of   today  as   for  me   people  like  doctor  Ruth   Fow   are  more   then   superheroes     who   chose   really   hard   way   of   life   and   leave   behind   the   remarkable   example   of   selflessness   and   sacrifice  . She   reached  eternity  through  her   pure   spirit   and  will  in   so   many   hearts   and   prayers   for evr!!!


Live   gloriously  like   a   shining   sun  who   shower   life   upon   earth  by  burning  itself  .
or    a  shady   tree   that   stand   selflessly    under   te   sun   no   matter   how   hard   the  sunlight  is   and   gives   peace   and   serenity    to   other   who   sit   under   it!

Nature   has    designed   only   one   religion   for   SUCCESSFUL    SURVIVOR 




 "RELIGION   OF   LOVE!!!"


God   Bless   You   ALL  dear   Friends!!!

    1. Thank you my friend I believe that the day when such last graceful and selfless soul will vanish from this world ,world will come to its end because world is running through the goodness which keep mending the wounds caused by the badness of the worst of this world

  11. Hi Baili, thanks for sharing this with us. And pointing out that 'Gratitude is a worthy Attitude!'
    Thank you for your note to me about the Neem tree! I thought it good to place this here so you'd see it 'quicker!' Appreciate your kindness. I've found that some infections of the skin aren't healed by Dr.s, but knowing "God's herb for it is Best!"
    Your pointing out the 'qualities' of a person who gives themselves for the good of others and having the LORD as their center (which is all the 'good qualities of character') is far better and a happy heart. Pleasing only ourselves (selfishness) is an endless chore! always wanting more - that is the 'sin nature ruling' (unconcerned or attentive to the Creator who gave us life and even 'our own unique personalities'!) So, we are to choose who and what to attend our time and efforts to (our thoughts)! May the God's Spirit guide us in all things!
    Here's something you might like to view on utube - if your able to watch it. Thanks again!

    1. Hi dc!
      thank you for your beautiful words on my blog ,i feel deeply grateful to hear from you as you share more of your precious thoughts and through whaich i lean more my friend and feel happy that you spent a little amount of your precious time thinking and responding to my simple words .

      I let you know one thing more that my mother knew lot about her Mother about herbs and each time when summer arrived close she used to grab lots of herbs (which 's most of names i forgot unfortunately) including the leaves of neem tree and wash and boil them for half hour almost .

      when the bitterest soup of the world was ready she pour it in a huge mugs and ask us to drink it with warning that if we did not she will ban our favorite games etc.

      she used to pour upon us this soup in last minute when we finished our bath as according to her it will protect from skin diseases .

    2. Thank you Baili! Appreciate your gentle kindness and consideration (+ happy heart :)
      It sure would be neat to have a 'record' of the herbs your grandma used. Those ladies were very 'keen' in knowing what to use for what problem and that would be good to have as a resource. There's many books about herb use, but not all are 'in the know'. Thank you for your 'time' too in communicating with me so nicely. A "Plus" to my day. God Bless and keep you and yours in His Way and Love. :)

  18. What a most wonderful lady Dr Ruth Pfau was. I too, had not know of this remarkable lady; thank you for sharing with us Baili. Your thoughts that when we are feeling low there is always so many who are less fortunate than ourselves resonated with me. Thank you, lovely Bailie for reminding me of this precious truth. Have the most wonderful week, lovely lady.

    All too often such selfless and inspirational people are overlooked, and that is so wrong.
    People like this wonderful lady are a true example to us all...and I really wish we could all learn to be more like her...

Hello Baiili, you visited my blog and I was very pleased to explore your blog and was so captivated by pictures of your beautiful village, the mountain views on some of your posts, the city life, the post with pictures of people celebrating Eid - the markets, shopping, so much colour and vibrancy - what a beautiful country you have. This post about Dr Ruth is lovely, a pause for thought, I didn't know of her so have learned something worthwhile today, thank you. And thank you for visiting my blog. Betty

  29. Dear Baili,
    Firs I want to thank you for visiting my blog the other day. I was most pleased to see a new friend.
    I have shared this post of yours to my husband's facebook page and our Google+ with the heading "we need to hear more things like this." I never heard of this woman before and I am sure many others have not heard of her either. We need to hear about them while they are alive and learn of the good work they are doing. There is already too much bad news in the world. Thank you so much for your beautiful blog.

  31. Thank you for sharing Doctor Ruth's story, Baili! People who choose to work among those suffering from leprosy are remarkable, gifted with selflessness and a deep reservoir of compassion and a drive to alleviate suffering.
